Visual & Performing Arts
The arts have the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.
– Sydney G. Clemens
The Arts For Balance And Beauty
The Arts are an important part of life and moves us in ways that are profound and deeply personal. They also connect us as thinking, feeling, and creative beings. The arts are about emotion, expression, and appreciation for things that are uncorporeal. The arts are a vital part of a holistic education that prepares students for a life of personal satisfaction, balance, and the enjoyment of culture.
The Arts For Success
Most people know the positive learning impact that comes from engagement in the arts. Participation in arts can increase confidence and motivation, leading to positive perceptions and enjoyment for the learning process across subjects. Connecting personal expression with opportunities to create can help children with feelings of intrinsic value and understanding. The technical skills associated with education in the arts are fundamental skills that transfer across disciplines and support learning in other areas. Cognitive function and skills such as communication, oratory, creative thinking, presentation skills, social understanding, and the act of connecting things in sensory ways are developed in arts education – these are skills that are not always built organically in other subjects.
