Art classes, such as painting and drawing, are as important for children's development as other subjects, so it should be compulsory in high school. Do you agree or disagree?

I agree that
art
related subjects are important for the development of children.
However
,
this
does not mean that these courses should be added into the curriculum of high school as compulsory subjects as will now be explained. There is no doubt that
art
classes make an equal contribution to the growth of a child compared to other subjects. By studying
art
courses, children may enrich their souls and build up their spiritual
life
. My younger sister, a twelfth grade student, once told me that drawing classes help her not only improve
skills but

skills, but
also
perceive
life
from different angles, which colours her
life
.
In contrast
, other subjects
such
as computer science and economics may lead more directly to a position of employment, but
life
would be meaningless if people spent all their time working. Despite the above arguments, I believe that
art
subjects should be made optional rather than compulsory. There are those who are not interested in the arts, and forcing them to study these classes merely results in an unnecessary pressure on learners and a waste of resources that may
otherwise
be available to teach other subjects.
For instance
, in an average class of 30, there are statistically at least one or two students who have no talent for painting and fail to produce a nice work of
art
.
This
causes their level of stress to rise especially when it comes to a formal exam. In conclusion, I do not believe that high school students should be required to attend
art
classes
Accept comma addition
classes, although
although
they are as crucial as other core subjects for the development of children.
