The importance of having art and creative subjects in the curriculum was stressed by artist Anton Grech at the opening of a recent exhibition of creative artworks by children at the junior school of St Edward’s College, Cottonera.
Mr Grech said university students of subjects such as architecture and engineering also need to have a good knowledge of art.
