The failure in broader understanding of education or its purpose is obvious when it lacks the due creativity. Even to talk on the contemporary note of professionalism that emphasises more on opportunities, it is important to have it in mid that no opportunity is possible without creativity. It’s a simple concept though; put someone through the track about which he/she is natively talented for better productivity. In fact, art is nothing but the expression of any creativity in a unique fashion.
The problem behind the perception that says the studies of fine arts lack professional worth or opportunity is not realising its broader context. On straightforward note, it’s the time for education system to prepare curriculum that blends technology and classic fine art studies with perfection.
The expanding opportunity of the art:
It’s astonishing actually to find people still seeing fine arts education with conventional eye missing opportunities. Starting from music, painting, photography to even the crafts, all these have become strong business interest. In fact, these niches are trading in millions. An era dominated by the web and technology, the scope of art is not confined within the boundaries of any state or nation; you can showcase your talent or uniqueness on global platforms in no time, and with minimal expense.
A practical dig:
There is no clue for the student to understand neither about its promotional or technological aspects. For example, taking the case of drama, it gets limited only within the school/college annual day celebration. On the other hand, the time has come to let these people to get a hands-on with at least a documentary preparation. Similarly, every institution should conduct photography exhibitions, as of the very common science exhibitions. These people should be definitely taught about the technicalities involved in contemporary photography. In concurrence, the students need to be made aware of the platforms those have been inspiring about a particular art form. Moreover, it’s like a must for all educational bodies to teach people about the career paths/options involved with a fine art study.
Scope is already there; it just needs to be taken
An unfortunate fact revealed according to a recent study that says about twenty percent public schools prefers to omit the fine art studies claiming the budget as a concern. Such claims are hard to accept in an era where arranging sponsorship for talent is pretty inspiring. Rather, lack of interest can be cited as one of the prominent reasons behind the above scenarios.
The same study also has to claim that there are a few other educational centres those claim lack of quality tutor is the reason behind fine arts missing from study curriculum. This can be a valid claim though. At least, those who are already successful (professionally) with an art form should definitely come forward in the process of its spread.
