Art a Waste of Time?
White, Theodore P.
Harvard Educational Review, v83 n1 p93-95 Spr 2013
The author describes his job as pretty mundane. He is a low-level government bureaucrat who sends a lot of emails and works with spreadsheets. Occasionally, when he gets to do something creative, like put together a sign, pamphlet, or slideshow, he feels a sense of peace and wishes he could do it more. This past spring, the author finally decided to ramp up his job skills and have some fun taking a college design class. In this article, he describes how he enjoyed learning some new skills and discusses how art education can enhance quality of life.
