The Benefits of an Arts Education by the Arts Education Partnership



Integrating arts modalities into the academic curriculum is as important a priority as any issue facing American education.  For both the student and the teacher, the arts offer the opportunity to reflect on both content and process, and play an integral role in joining fact and meaning in a person's education.  Learning through and with the arts inspires the creativity and imagination that is so essential to think critically, love deeply, and to live fully in a diverse and complex world.
