Passive Learning vs. Dynamic Learning

My good friend and former classmate Ken Rohrer is the creator and webmaster of the Incredible Art Department. Ken published an essay I wrote about the importance of children's fine arts programs. Here is an excerpt:  

"Within schools, the art room is that unique place where children are allowed to experiment, imagine, create and express personal ideas using a myriad of forms, materials, artist’s techniques and technologies. Much of visual arts education learning requires students to execute the steps to represent and convey ideas in two, three, and four dimensions. This requires individuals to develop the ability to focus their attention on a vast array of quality control details. The assembly of these qualities within an art work requires a synchronization of consciousness with one’s imagination and the sensory, emotive and cognitive realms."
