Art possesses the capacity to develop one’s ability to observe, be patient, appreciate multiple perspectives, develop strategies both spontaneous and deliberate, meditate deeply upon a subject, and to engage in a dialogue with one’s environment and community. In fact, art is not only capable of nurturing such awareness, one could say art is the apotheosis of such cognitions. What kind of job can you get with an art degree? What kind of world will we we have without purposefully developing these human conditions?
