Arts education helps students develop important disciplinary and cross curricular competencies for learning and living well together in an interconnected world. Research indicates that arts education contributes to learning engagement, self-efficacy, and a wide range of positive academic, social, and emotional effects. Arts education offers learners diverse, unique, and powerful ways of perceiving and making meaning about the world.
Arts education learnings are interconnected, and promote authentic, transformative, and lifelong learning. Arts learnings focus on artistic and creative processes, critical reflection, the significance and purpose of the arts for individuals and groups, and disciplinary skills, knowledge, and competencies.
