  1. The reason why I love art is because I can be free to be creative and draw. I use my imagination. I've liked art ever since I was little. I was even a good drawer for a kindergardener. I think that I was meant to be a great artist.

    It is important to have art class because you can use your imagination and express your feelings in art. Then you can be very creative.

  2. I love art because it is very unique, and clever. What do you do in art that can be fun? You can draw, paint, and color. You can also express yourself and how you feel and no one can judge you. Even though people can think art can be boring, but when you get to know it and express your feelings it makes you feel great!

    I think art is important because it brings the essential part of you out and you can express it unlike other electives. Lastly, you can enter fun contests and maybe win something! As the best teacher ever says and I agree with her was, "don't break my heart. save art." I LOVE ART!!!!!

  3. we love art because we use our imaginations to express are feeling and then put in a drawing. It is important to have art class because it helps you to be unique and original. Also it helps us use the right side of our brain because the right side is the creative part and a essential part of a childs growth and development!

  4. I like art for many various reasons. It would be such a shame if it got taken away from the school, then others wuldn't be able to experience and embrace the awesomeness of art. It would also leave a very good art teacher having to do something she doesn't love. It alllows you to express how you feel in different ways such as drawing, painting, etc. You can put down onto paper whatever you would like, and no one judges anything you put; it's all based on you and what YOU want to do.

    Art is important because You can use it for valuable reasons in life. What if someone needed an opinion on a piece, but you didn't know anything about it? That's why art would help you out. Art is a good elective and it is very helpful and also just simply fun.

  5. We love art because you can express your feeling and expressions through your artwork. We can be free to explore and create our own artwork. Art is very unique and clever in many ways. You can draw, paint, and color in many different ways. When you make something or draw something that is very good it makes you feel great and makes you feel that you did something good in life!

    Art is important because you can use the right and left side of the brain to be unique, creative, oringinal, and you can express yourself. Art makes you calm down and lowers your blood pressure. Art can be given to anyone or anything.

  6. I like art because you can do many things. For example you can express your feelings, imaging, be original, and unique. It will be very heart breaking if art is not available next year because they would not have the opertunity to express themselves, have fun, and be more opened to other people. You also learn the quality of art and be able to do what you want to do. You do not need to follow certain instructions, you are just free to draw or create what is in your mind. So one last thing to say is PLEASE do not take art away!!!!

  9. There are many reasons why I like art. There is a lot of cool stuff to do, like having painting parties and entering contests where you can win prizes. We get to have fun, be creative, be original and unique. It would be very dissapointing if we did not have art anymore. Not only would the students be dissapointed, but also Ms.Kaplanis would be left doing something other than art,

  10. We love art. It lets us express ourselves in every way possible. it lets be creative people be creative. In art class the homework is actually fun and interesting. Our favorite parts of art are; painting, working with clay, and oil pastels. With art there are no limitations. We have the best art teacher ever. We are lucky to have such an amazing art teacher. Some other reasons we love art so much are, free drawing, working with our hands. Without art, our days would be nowhere near as interesting as they are. Art is important because it lets us express out true feelings. It is fun. No one can judge you on your art. It lets me be creative as we possibly can. These are some of the few reasons we love art.

  13. I like art because there is always a time when you could draw or doodle anything you want. Art class relaxes your brain especially because i have art 6th period so it relaxes my brain after the whole day of hard work.

    I think art class is important because you learn how to draw and learn how to draw.

  17. Why i love art? I love are because it is fun. When in art i can paint and free draw. And in art you can become a better artist. And I can draw or paint pictures for your family. And in art class you can express your fellings on paper. when there is an art contest you will have a chance to win things. When Ms. Kaplanis gives us a chance to win nice things. in art she teaches you new techiques of new art.

    It is imporant to have art class. Because you can have the most fun of the day. I like art better than all the other electives. when she gives you a homework assignment you are learing about some ohter subjects.

  18. I love art because its very creative and it is the only time we can express our feelings to draw. It is all so fun to just doodle on the page.

    Art is very important because their is diffrent styles of art. Its very important because you can really have fun with friends and you are drawing about life and other ideas. So it is like history class you learn about it and you write it down on a piece of paper but in art you draw some place or time in history.

  19. why we love art? I love art because I am a good artist. Do you think it is important to have art class? I think it is important to have art class. The reason it is important to have art is that it gives me ideas to what I am learning about. What I have learned in art like quilling I would not have learned that anywhere else.

  20. I love art because it relaxes me. I walk into art and just feel free and open to draw. I think its important to have art class because it lets people have opinions and it doesn't matter what other people think of your artwork because in your eyes its beautiful. Art class helps you have self confidence in yourself.

  21. I love art because it's like a way to show how you feal on paper. Art class is important to me and other people because it's a great class and whenever I am in art class I can do work while i'm with my friends and while we all are sharing our fealings. Its a way to have fun, while learning new skills. Art even has mixed ways to show your other classes like drawing a picture of a time period and how it changed. Without art class it would be a horibbly boring day. Art class is very important to me and other students, because it's a way for us all to express our fealings on paper, and also everyone can have different ways to make art, which makes it more great.

  22. I think art is important in life. Art can be in many different forms. There is culinary arts, for cooking, fine arts for panting, etc. Art is important because without art there wouldn't be very many ways to express yourself. Art is an important elective in middle school because without art class there wouldn't be that many more fun electives.
    I like art class because I can express how I feel. Without art, it is like a world without color. I would be bored a lot because at home I like to draw.

  24. Hi People of America, I think it's a bad idea to cut art. I think this because you could just cut some other teachers pay to fund for art for at least another year. If you do this then probably by next year everything will be fixed and you can still keep art and raise the teachers pay again.

    I also think this is a good idea because art is such a special class. You can express your feelings and not get arrested. It's such a nice class with a thoughtful teacher who wants to keep her class and her little artists. She doesn't want a different class and neither do I.

  25. Art is essential to a childs growth. It lets them express themselves and allows them to balance school and fun. Art is a way to give freedom to a child or a adult. I love art because it is a great way to leave the rest of the world and focus on something not of the world. It lets you focus not on what the media says, it is just you and your artwork.

  27. I love art because it gives kids the freedom and creativity to express ourselves. If we didn't have art, I would be sad because art is the perfect escape from reality. Art gives you the freedom to draw whatever you want and not be judged. Art gives you the oppertuinity to look at your work and be proud of yourself, because evry piece of artwork is a great piece.

You can just break free into tour own little art world and you have no worries about anything once you get started in your own little art project. You can express your thinkings through art. You can use paint, colors, and draw and express your feelings.

  30. I luv art because when I am in the classroom I feel like can just be myself and nobody can critisize my about anything. I think that it is important to have art class because as kids we need a way to let out our emotions. After every day when I get home I will sit on the couch and watch some TV after a while I feel like I need to let out my emotions and I am not aloud to yell in the house so I get out my scetch book and start to draw. After I finish I have already forgotten why I was drawing in the first place.

  31. i think art is very wonderful to have in school because everybody loves art. it expresses how we feel in many ways. that`s what I really think. and what about those people who want to become artist? they really must feel very down right now because that`s what they want to do in the future and that`s valuable to them. and i also love art because we have painting parties. also because we have the best art teacher in the world and we would really miss her and we want her to be with us for the rest of the school year and we all love her a lot because weve learned everything we know from her and we owe it all to her! thank you ms.kaplanes!

  32. I luv art because it allows free expresion and is a stress free environment that keeps the mind at ease. if art is taken out of schools many people will be sad. along with sadness they will be over whelmed with stress because students like me use art as a place of peace and free creativity.

  46. I love art because you can interpret it any way you like. You are also free to love or not love pieces..... and that is OK! You can spend hours, minutes or hardly any time at all with a piece of art and not be chastised or thought less of. When I go to a gallery, there are things I really love, things I really dislike and things I look and can't decide whether I like or dislike because I am confused. When this happens, I am usually trying to figure out what the artist is trying to tell us or "what were they thinking?! (in my best doctor Phil voice)." Art can serve as an outlet for emotions, a way of expressing oneself when there are no words and as an outlet for stress.

    While I have always toward the more logical side of things, my mother was an artist and so is a very dear friend of mine. I've modeled for both and have found the experience to be both relaxing and emotionally cleansing. You feel as if you've had a sense of renewal almost like a spa day or a great vacation.

    I still have many of my mother's pieces hanging in my home and they embody who she was and what she was like much better than any photograph ever could.

  47. We love art because of many different reasons. First of all, because Ms. Kaplanis is FANTASTIC!! We can express our feelings through art, depending on if your happy, sad, depressed, extatic, excited, broken hearted, or even in love. Art showspart of you without being judged by others. There is no bad and good in art. Everything is beautiful in it's own special way. You can always be imaganitive. So, if you take art away from us, you are taking creativity away from our lives and no one will be able to express themselves.

  48. Art is not just an extra curriculum but it is something where you can show your personality and express yourself. When I draw, it is magical. It feels like anything is possible. Art also helps make our imagination grow. With art at our school, you can be creative, have fun, be artistic, show who you are, and so much more. My passion is ART.

  54. I love art because it gives mme a way to vent my emotions. Much of the time i have all these emotions bubbling up inside of me and art gives me a way to vent all of those emotions. I also love to work with paint and pastels and clay. Art is one of my favorite classes in school. It's sooooooo much fun to be able to make beautiful works of art. One of mt favorite things about art is when I do a picture and it turns out just the way i wanted it to. There's nothing like that sense of pride and accomplishment when you finisha beautiful peice of art. Keep art in our schools. If art is taken from our schools it will be awful.

  62. Art is the one thing that let kids express their feelings. There are a million ways to be creative in art. There is no right or wrong in doing art. No one can be perfect. Art is the one thing which doesnt matter about you but how you express yourself in the artwork you put on paper. When doing art you can relax and let everything off your shoulders. The feeling when you do art is amazing, everything blurs except for your love for art. Ms Kaplanis is the one to stay, because she allows kids to be as creative as they want.

  67. We luv art because you can never really be wrong unless you misbehave, which still isn't wrong in the world of art. You can draw a dragon eating a person and call it a firetruck because art is coming from your opinion and you can't be corrected in art.

    I think that art is important because it lets me express my emotions with different colors. I think that art is important because it's time to just let yourself do whatever you want. You can draw whatever you want without getting in trouble. That is why we luv art class.

  76. I love art because it is such a fun and creative way to learn new things. Art is also very fun to do when you don't have anything to do when you are bored. Art is also a great way to become very relaxed from maybe a really hard day. I also think that art should be put into all of the school in El Segundo.

    I also think that art is very open minded and out of this world. I had started art when i was about 5 years old. i entred the school contest and i had won 1st place. Ever since then i have loved painting with oil paint and i have entred every contest that i can.

    With out art the school would be very different and many people would be upset. The school would also be different because many students would not have a good way to express feelings and might express their feelings in a bad way. I hope all schools will have an art class in the future!!!!!!

I think the government is being stupid by cutting art class because everybody needs to use the right side of your brain. If you don't,you'll never get to be able to express your creativity and your feelings. Because all of your feelings and creativness will be locked inside of your body forever!

  111. The are many reasons of why I luv art. First, Without art, students wouldnt be able to express thier emotions or feelings through a beautiful piece of artwork whether you're happy, sad, anxious, etc. Second, There is no right or wrong. Your piece of artwork is never a mistake. Sometimes, were all searching to find no mistakes and art helps you feel that. Last, Art classes provide students a chance to develop their creative skills and thier amazing imagination.
    Art class is so important to have for many reasons. First, it is confirmed that Arts education strengthens student problem-solving and critical thinking skills, adding to overall academic achievement, school success, and preparation for the work world. Second, for some students, Art is their motivation for coming to school and an area(or a bubble) where they have success or excel, providing an important balance in their total educational experience. Lastly, art's education helps develop a positive work ethic, flexibility, and pride in a job well done. *Please, don't take art away from us. It's our only way to express in a fun way who we really are.

  137. Save the Art Class!
    I like art because you are able to express your feelings. I enjoy drawing scenes of nature. It is fun for me to draw the pictures and it is probably fun for artist to do so also. Artists went to some kind of art class when they were younger exposing them to try art. Since they took that class and practiced, they became a famous artist. If people take away art class, students might forget or not have time to do art. There will eventually be fewer artists and fewer beautiful pictures in the world. Art makes people happy and kids too. By cutting out the art class, the students would have less opportunities to be open too. There are a lot of students who take art because they like it. Please do not take out art class as you would be hurting the students.

  153. Art is a passion. You can express yourself in any way. Art is not just painting or drawing. It is a way of life. I would not be happy if art wasn't around. Art is what keeps a smile on my face every day. Art is the only time I have to draw what I feel. My art may be sad sometimes because maybe I am feeling sad. I feel artistic when I am in art.
    Art is my life.

  154. I love art because it gets into your deep emotions and art could help you by doing so. Art is good because it can tell that if you were mad sad and or happy. Art is good for education because without art you cannot use your imagination and that is one of the greatest thimgs in life. Without imagination there would be no airplanes or anything....... art has come through and has made a big difference in life. Art is the best thing that could happen to us....... plus you can explore your true COLORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  155. We love art because it gives us the chance to be individuals. There are alot of reasons why we love art for example you can experese yourself in ways that you probably didn't know you could. Being in an art class nobody can say anything because its the way you feel that is drawen on the paper. For me being in an art class is really cool.

  156. I love Art because first off miss Kaplanis is the best teacher. She teachs everyone a lot. Art lets you be free and open minded. You have complete creative controll. If art is gone many teachers will be out of jobs and we will lose one great elective to chose from.

  157. I love art because you can let your feelings out in a fun way. Really i am way better at drawing things then painting and sculpting. ART is better than all electives and classes really if you have first period it will be way better than all classes. We have ms. Kaplanis who is a very good teacher and has been teaching for years and she makes art fun thats why i love art.

  160. i LUV art because i got to meet this fine lady cami kaplanis my art teacher for three years in a row and i think we can all agree that cami is pretty much an angel with her long brown hair, iron-man thighs, and i must say that cami is the only woman that can pull off wearing an esms art shirt everyday. KEEP IT UP MS KAPLANIS ;)
