Why an education in visual arts is the key to arming students for the future

· Art Science Links

Another great piece from the Conversation highlighting the long term economic outcomes that come from arts education. For Australia to compete in this marketplace, visual acuity, visual literacy and the ability to communicate visually must be recognised as an equally fundamental skill to those of language and numeracy. These can all be taught through grounding in the visual arts. This links very strongly to the growing case for creativity to be recognised as a skills set taught throughout school and beyond into adulthood.
