“The arts are fundamental resources through which the world is viewed, meaning is created, and the mind developed.”
– Elliot W Eisner, Professor of Education and Art, Stanford University


The fine arts (theatre, visual art, music and dance) communicate a broad range of customs, beliefs, ideas and feelings; they are the primary means of transmitting culture throughout history, influencing an enormous range of human activity and discovery. The arts are an essential part of every child’s learning and cognitive development, sharpening analytical skills, encouraging abstract associations, innovative thinking, and creative problem solving.
