Motivational Mondays: The Sweet Spot: Glee and Arts Education

I want to take the time to share this wonderful article with you about the power of the arts.  Honestly, this Motivational Monday is more for me and my need to stay positive and motivated as I continually look for work in Art Education.  I feel that for me to stay positive, I can help other people be positive too.  I gotta practice what I preach, yah know?

The Sweet Spot: Glee and Arts Education


One particular quote in the article stood out for me:

“Arts education can literally save lives. I work with kids that are struggling with a lot in life whether it is poverty or violence or trauma. Having an outlet and a teacher to guide them to express themselves creatively as opposed to internalizing or responding to violence with violence is vital. It is, in fact, an intervention.” –by writer and youth educator Carrie Leilam Love

And that is why I choose teach art.
