Education secretary Nicky Morgan has warned young people that choosing to study arts subjects at school could "hold them back for the rest of their lives".
The art critic Ruskin referred to the balance of art education as representing heart, head and hand. That might be referred to as attitude, aptitude and application in less emotive or poetic language. At the core of this sentiment is the idea that a person is seeking to grow and become effective in the world.
A response from Paul Haywood, NAFAE Chair.
