Fine Arts role in a balanced curriculum
The arts develop the ability to understand, decipher, and interpret images, symbols, and sensory data in today’s technological environment. They provide a means for expression and response when words are inadequate. The self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, self-motivation, and skills of problem-solving and critical thinking developed as a result of arts study are essential for success in life. Regardless of capabilities, disabilities, talents, or background, all students deserve access to the benefits that focused arts study can provide.
