    Art can heal during times of crisis. This is because it allows you to express yourself, it allows you to free your mind. This is especially good if you are someone in isolation is these current times because, through art, you can let out your emotions instead of keeping everthing inside you. Art is also a good way to stop being bored. When you do art can burn multiple hours that would otherwise be boring. When you do art your mind and body are engaged, just like yoga. Some people find art theraputic as it connects the mind and body, when you are at home, art keeps you active.

    I do not think the arts are only valuable to certain people in society. In think the arts are valuable to everyone in society. This is because art can change opinions and you can use it to communiate ideas. However, on the other hand, art might only be valuable to people who can accsess it in society. If you can not access art then it holds no value to you because you can not do it.

    In conclusion, I think art does have the power to heal during a crisis and I also think that art is valuable to everyone in society because you can use it to show how change needs to take place and you can use it to comunicate.

      This is a very balanced comment versatile_molecule, well done! Your point about art only being valuable to people who can access it is interesting. What do you mean by "access"?

    Too me all arts are important no matter what form it is and even though arts are beautiful government money should never be spent on it.It is not useful but expresses a lot of things.Arts are one of the most extraordinary things made but not made. You might ask what I mean by that? I mean that it’s called art people make art but no one made a pure definition so it’s not intentionally made. I feel like not all people have to enjoy art you can’t force yourself to be someone your not. But everyone of us must feel a different about each art like I feel like quite emotional to some mini movies. But all in all I want to say arts are as important mentally and physically but it might not be important as some things like mental health and knowledge it is important all the same.

    Thanks for reading,

    I believe all art is beautiful in its own way no matter what form it takes for example abstract art is beautiful because strange and wonderfull.

    Art is so amazing. It can help heal people as well as helping someone to find their confidence and creativity! Remember art is not always drawing a picture! It can be martial arts or acting and even poetry!! Art does not mean to go and paint a painting or to draw a beautiful picture!!! Art can be used in so many different ways!
    I believe that schools should spend much more time on art as it will be used much more in the future and it can help a child to express their feelings through art! All art should be appreciated in schools not just drawing a picture!
