Art Education and the Onion
Pipe Cleaners, Googly Eyes Cut From Elementary School Arts Budget
This headline appeared on the front page of the Onion’s August 16th issue here in Minneapolis. Besides being hysterical, it’s a sad commentary on the state of art education these days. The Onion is so effective at being thigh-slapping funny because there’s always a kernel of truth in whatever subject they take on.
But I’ll save the seriousness for my next blog. There’ll be plenty of time later for moaning and wringing our hands at the real inadequacies of the public education of our children. For now enjoy the Onion and weep only at the hilarity of it all.
