Want Your Children to Survive The Future? Send Them to Art School

I entirely agree that learning to think creatively will be indispensable in the future. However, I can’t really attest to the concrete career value of an artistic education — I attended an arts college, only to finish and find a market flooded with skilled artists in a highly competitive freelance market, cumulatively driving down the value of an already undervalued trade.

Rather than advocating for sending one’s children to art school, I would rather advocate for alternative approaches to children’s education, such as Montessori and Reggio Emilia, to be brought forward into the mainstream, and outside of the (very expensive) private sphere, to better ensure that children develop that creative literacy.
