Arts Education for the Development of the Whole Child - Arts Literature Review by Dr. Rena Upitis | Contemporary issues in music education | Scoop.it

The Arts provide opportunities to develop creativity and imagination, and to experience joy, beauty, and wonder.

This literature review highlights ways to support and advance Arts education to make it a central part of the education of the whole child.
