Creating a better world through art

In Karen Blessen’s article on her approach to creating peace, she describes how increasing art in schools can help enrich students’ lives and promote peace.  I know personally that art was a crucial part of what motivated me in school, especially high school. During college, I used art as a way to express myself, to relax, and to create.  The result is that I am happier, healthier, and more whole. Here’s hoping all schools–and all folks–get a little extra art in their lives.
