Young artists who have found a means of expression and a sense of achievement talk about why the arts are a vital part of their education and lives. The series aims to inspire all students to enjoy artistic pursuits and to use the arts in other curriculum areas. Each program concentrates on one of the visual or performing arts, focusing on one student's thoughts, feelings, and aspirations. Some students intend to take up the arts as a career; others just take pleasure from artistic activity. They discuss the challenges involved: the time required for practice and the self-discipline that is the basis of any serious artistic effort. The rewards - performances and showing of works - speak for themselves.
