Although the ticking of the clock marks each passing second, each minute. Each hour gone, never to be returned. Each fraction so precisely calculated. The divisions of a whole that little marks so proudly proclaim. These marks that represent to us how much is done or how much is left, leaving our stomachs turning with excitement or regret and our minds calculating what can be done with what is left or what is lost.
10 Lessons the Arts (Actually) Teach
1. The arts teach children to make GOOD JUDGEMENTS about qualitative relationships. Unlike much of the curriculum in which correct answers and rules prevail, in the arts, it is judgement rather than rules that prevail.
2. The arts teach children that problems can have MORE than ONE solution and that questions can have more than one answer.
3. The arts celebrate multiple PERSPECTIVES. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to SEE and INTERPRET the world.
4. The arts teach children that in complex forms of problem solving purposes are seldom fixed, but change with circumstance and opportunity. Learning in the arts requires the ABILITY and a WILLINGNESS to surrender to the unanticipated possibilities of the work as it unfolds.
5. The arts make VIVID that face that neither words in their literal form nor numbers exhaust what we can KNOW. The limits of our language do not define the limits of our COGNITION.
6. The arts teach students that SMALL DIFFERENCES can have LARGE EFFECTS. The arts traffic in subtleties.
7. The arts teach students to think through and within a material. All art forms employ some means through which IMAGES become REAL.
8. The arts help CHILDREN LEARN to say what cannot be said. When children are invited to disclose what a work of arts helps them FEEL, they must reach into their POETIC CAPACITIES to find the words that will do the job.
9. The ARTS ENABLE us to have EXPERIENCE we can have from no other source and through such experience to DISCOVER the range and variety of what we are capable of FEELING.
10. The arts’ position in the school curriculum symbolizes to the young what adults BELIEVE is IMPORTANT.
Don’t get any closer to each other
This is the most interesting thing I’ve seen all year.
I don’t know how to feel about this
What is this suppose too meann?
it represents the fragility of friendship. Once you get too close you can break something that can be beautiful. If you recede too far the beauty will fly away. The eyes on the butterflies wings symbolise the truth about the pain they have seen.
DUDE, that was so deep
This is what i believe too
