The purpose of Arts Education in the schools is to establish for every child a permanent relationship with the arts which will give each individual a sense of satisfaction, personal growth, and artistic literacy during their school years and throughout life.
For children to develop their mental capabilities and realize their fullest potential, they need to be exposed to many different kinds of knowledge. Study in the Arts, creates students who are innovative, creative thinkers, problem solvers, and team players. These skills are vital to the development of 21st century thinking skills. All of the Fine Arts develop these skills and need to be a part of every child’s education.
