Academic Journal
The author reflects the importance of the study of art in elementary and secondary education. The author states that the approach of art as therapy is not suitable for testing, unless it is exactly stated in the course offering. According to the author, the genius mythology puts little value on hard work and believes on the output as a product of magic. The author emphasizes the concepts of art, which is viewed as therapy, entertainment and mystery in some aspects.
