Renowned sculptor and visual artist Ann Scango has some serious opinions regarding the factors that are currently holding back art education. Referencing the statements of Mae Jemison, it is clear that the fact that culture places a separation between science and art is largely to blame for art education being held back. The reality is that the two fields are actually related. They can be seen as the point where people’s understanding and their desires join together.
There are a few school that do offer programs that fuse together art and science education but they are far and few between and most students do not have access to them. At this point, public schools generally only teach what is going to be on upcoming standardized tests in order to make the school look good by achieving high test scores. The real truth is that the combination of art and science education is vital for the future because together the forge vital building blocks and help to inspire innovation. Once schools become willing to become more flexible with their curriculum, then art education may cease being consistently held back.
