The purpose of arts education is not to create professional artists. We do not study poetry to become poets. Nor do we study music to become musicians, or theatre to become actore. The real purpose of arts education is to awaken us to the full potentioal of our humanity both as indiviuals and citizens in society. Dana Gioia, former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts
