Learning Through the Arts

The logical method for educating children should begin with the Arts because; the arts are an extension of our senses.  In addition, they are the sole, total evidence of man’s development throughout civilization.



The strengthening and development of the senses is crucial in the development of the total child.  The ability to assimilate the meaning of words, symbols and concepts depends on a foundation of alert senses.

Life is motion and motion is constant.  Each living moment should lead to another discovery or the pursuit of another discovery, another skill, another challenge or the satisfaction of enjoying and recognizing the arts of other people.

The arts establish the universe of sound, motion, sight, touch and taste.  These senses need to be reinforced so that further stages of abstract learning can become meaningful.
