The Beaux arts also known as the Fine Arts began in the Stone Age. In this essay I will explain why the Fine Arts are necessary in this day and age. Fine Arts are a necessity in today’s world. Manny people believe it is not nessiseary. I disagree with those people, even in this technological age the Fine Arts are a necessity.

To begin, fine arts should be explained so people can understand the true meaning. In the past, the five greater fine arts were painting, sculpture, architecture, music and poetry, with minor arts including drama and dancing. Today, the fine arts commonly include the visual art and performing arts. Fine arts are similar to American literature.

Students need Fine Arts in their schools. Many schools do not have art classes; they feel it is not necessary. They are wrong; the Fine Arts are needed so that the children can become educated in the visual arts. Most schools without Fine Art programs have a higher dropout rate than those that do. The reason for that being is that the kids have no way to express themselves. It is a fact that most kids that have do not have a stable way to express themselves do so in a destructive pattern.

Another example for why the Fine Arts are necessary n this day and age is culture. There’s an old saying stating “If you don’t know your past you want see the future”. That may sound like its leaning more toward History but, but that is exactly what the Fine Arts are. There are so many technological advances but none of them would be possible without the Fine Arts. The Fine Arts are the foundation of reading, writing, and precision.

Fine Arts are a great aspect in today’s life. We definitely need it in the schools. It sets a great foundation for us as a people. It is also full of history and without it would we really be that advanced. As I have stated we do need the Fine Arts as a necessity in this technological age.
