Petition Increase funding for art departments in primary schools

Many primary school art departments have had funding reduced, impacting art education. The Government must provide additional funding so all primary school students receive the arts education they deserve, as it can be greatly beneficial for their development and allows them to express themselves.

More details

Art is a lesson which allows children to express themselves, and as one of the most popular subjects, the Government must ensure it is properly funded.

Studies have shown just how important art can be for children as can help their awareness of shape and colour grow, in addition to helping them align classrooms with having fun. It is imperative the Government increase the funding so art classes can continue.
