PHILOSOPHY: Education and the Arts

Jobs in the new economy “put an enormous premium on creative and innovative skills, [and] seeing patterns where others see only chaos.” (Marc Tucker, President of the National Center on Education and the Economy)

"When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I am finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong". (Buckminster Fuller)

"The information age has given way to the conceptual age. It’s not about the number of engineers in a nation. It’s about how many artists and poets are present to create the new meaning necessary in a conceptual world". (Daniel Pink, 2005, A Whole New Mind)

"Some of my most powerful educational memories are centered around art, and the connections that can be made between art and other subjects. As a math student I remember my teacher showing us how math was used by Da Vinci in his paintings, and how math was prevalent in some of nature’s most beautiful creations (flowers, oceans,rainbows, etc.) I think aesthetic education is a powerful way to connect everyday life to subjects that often seem obscure or abstract. These connections serve to make learning a meaningful and beautiful process". (Jeremiah Johnson – teacher remembering his own experiences as a student)
