Art Education Petition in Finland

Adressi taideaineiden opetuksen puolesta

The education in arts in elementary school as well as primary- and
pre-school teacher training has been cut down during the past few years.
We regard arts as a fundamental part of all children’s education and do
not accept this trend.


Art education provides understanding of one’s senses, oneself and the
surrounding world. In today’s media culture this is more important than
ever. We want to believe in a school that cares for the entire
personality with uncompromised integrity.

This petition will be handed over to the Ministry of Education, the
Finnish National Board of Education, and the Parliament of Finland with
in order to initiate a debate on the status of art education.
