Arts Education

Arts education in New Zealand, is comprised of four disciplines: Visual Arts, Dance, Drama and Music Sound Arts. Given the recognition of the growing need for essential skills such as creativity, communication and collaboration, the Arts are gaining a renewed focus.

The Arts are an essential part of living. Engaging in the arts offers significant intrinsic societal value, enhances academic outcomes and contributes to overall quality of life. Students in Arts Education papers will gain specific discipline knowledge and a broader understanding of the Arts in educational settings through hands-on learning opportunities that nurture curiosity and creativity.

Arts Education papers invite participants to explore their passion, enhance their practice and articulate the value and significance of the Arts in society.
