Most of today's students, because of lack of exposure and the distraction of movies, videos, television, and popular music, are not educated in the arts and its vocabulary. Rather than being boring or stuffy this context presents words that are essential to succeed beyond school - words include: masterpiece, eminent, acclaim, appreciation, critics, abstract, creativity, and more.
