ART'S PRESIDENT'S SPEECH GETS NEW LIFE


"THE FOURTH 'R' IN EDUCATION: Reading, WRiting, ARithmetic and ARt" now featured by ART RENEWAL CENTER (ARC):

This speech was originally given on November 3, 1997, at Hillsdale College for a conference on "Art and the Moral Imagination (where I also curated a major art exhibit for the event), and it has been given in person or published in five other venues. This re-printing is the sixth, and I am sad to say that my theme is even more important today than when it was first given because the public education system has plummeted even further in the 10 intervening years. Here  is the new link to the speech on ARC: https://www.artrenewal.org/Article/Title/The-Fourth-R-in-Education

ART RENEWAL CENTER (ARC) internationally leads the revival of realism in the visual arts. The organization is a 501(C)(3), non-profit, educational foundation, that offers thousands of images of art on its site, www.artrenewal.org and promotes living artists who paint in the realist tradition, offers yearly scholarships to art students at ARC approved atelier based art schools, articles on art and culture and hosts the now famous International ARC Salon Competition™, which this year had 3,750 entries from 69 countries. Art lovers will find much pleasure on their site, which is vast in scope and comprehensive in theme. Please note that the photo accompanying this post has nothing to do with my speech; it is on the Home page and relates to an ARC competition. Photos of art chosen by me to accompany my speech are embedded within the speech itself.  Feel free to pass on to those who might find interest in art education.
