Teaching and Learning
The arts are where learning starts, from a child’s first exploration of meaning on a page by finger painting to an adult's use of the arts to develop, understand and communicate new ideas. The fundamental way in which we experience our world and express our selves is through the arts, and arts education develops essential skills and abilities for successful 21st century citizens.
