A new approach to education using the arts’, is a European Union funded education project that is designing innovative methodologies to add creativity in to schools through the arts, as a key component of every school subject. European education has a critical need to find a way to weave creativity in to every aspect of the school curriculum, to not squeeze or under-utilize the arts as a key tool of nurturing creativity but to bring creativity through artistic expression in to every subject.
The arts play a fundamental role to support a student’s creative abilities, self-expression and learning abilities. They are a necessary tool especially when not thought as separate subjects but integrated throughout the curriculum. For example, dance in mathematics, drawing in history, music in languages etc.
