Why has art become the dying art? Art in the twenty-first century has suddenly become undervalued and insignificant. The once highly praised Avant-guard world of art has surprisingly come to a stop. All channels of creativity have been placed on the back-burner and attention is placed on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Children have lost the ability to express themselves in a safe environment, there are minimal art courses being offered. But why is creativity dying? Creativity is dying because schools and teachers are not encouraging students to dream bigger than imagined. The platform for children to express themselves has been removed and they are not encouraged to create which destroys their ability to think creatively. Public education is available to provide children with a decent education to become productive citizens of society however sometimes that is not the case. My contention is that there needs to be a severe change in the way we educate our children because society cannot continue down this tumultuous path. . .
