Dear readers, this picture was sent to us by Wajeha from Rawalpindi Pakistan. Wajeha told us, that she reads this blog at weekly basis. She wants to introduce herself to our readers. Wajeha tells that I am final year student of Art. I love Pakistani tradition, people very much where there they live. I am so confused to do this but as I am broadminded I have confident to do.

She shares some lines about Why Art and Music Education is Important. Wajeha says for the past ten years, public schools have had trouble funding school programs such as art class and music class. Not having at least some kind of music or art education gives kids a severe disadvantage when they enter college and the work place. In art and music classes, children learn to be creative and use other parts of their brain besides the logical part of the brain used in most school subjects. Also, studies have shown that music and art help kids in other subjects like science and math. Studies have shown, too, that art and music class can help kids gain confidence needed to succeed in school and in the professional world. Finally, in art class, students learn how to use tools like drafting chairs and drafting tables that many professionals use, such as architects and graphic designers. Therefore, it is essential that public schools make sure they get the funding they need to keep these programs alive.
