Why Studying Art is Important?

Learning through and about the arts enriches the experience of studying while at school, as well as preparing children for life after school.

  • Arts subjects encourage self-expression and creativity and can build confidence as well as a sense of individual identity.
  • Creativity can also help with wellbeing and improving health and happiness.  Arts lessons  can act as an outlet for releasing the pressures of studying as well as those of everyday life.
  • Studying arts subjects also help to develop critical thinking and the ability to interpret the world around us.
