Explain what impressed or surprised you about those claims.

Learn why the arts should be important to all students, no matter your discipline or career path. Click on this link to the article, The Importance of Fine Arts Education, to read the article by Bob Bryant. Then, write two paragraphs identifying which of the author’s contentions most impressed or surprised you. Explain what impressed or surprised you about those claims. Each of the two paragraphs must contain, at least, 8-10 college-level complete sentences (i.e., compose sentences with at least six words or less). Plagiarism will not be tolerated and will result in a grade of a “0” for the assignment. Your text must be in your own words, so please do not simply “cut & paste” text or use phrases/text not written by you. Also, remember – paraphrasing is a form of plagiarism – so be careful not to do so. Save your essay using a Microsoft Word or Rich Text format. The only other format the instructor can open is Mac’s Pages. Microsoft Works is not the same as Microsoft Word and cannot be opened by the instructor. If you have Microsoft Works, save your Microsoft Works file to a Rich Text format before attempting to upload your paper. If your file cannot be opened by the instructor, you will receive a “0” for the assignment. When you are ready to submit your paper, click on the title link – Importance of Arts Education, and you will be taken to another page. Do not simply cut and paste your answer in the “Submission” or “Comments” area.Â
