Art should be an important part of the course curriculum in school. The teachers should ensure that art is given priority as it is needed in many aspects of life. Students’ creativity, communication, and motor skills will improve with the help of art. Here are some ways art can be promoted in school.
Meetings should be arranged where the teachers and parents can sit together to discuss how art can be included in the curriculum in an interesting way so that students feel encouraged to participate in the art-related activities.
The students should also be given a chance to share their ideas about it. You can send questionnaires to the students and parents to find out what they think can be done to promote art in school.
Plan different activities
You can start different fun activities in the classroom. You can try arts bingo, a game where students should perform what’s written on the bingo cards. For example, if the student picks up a card saying ‘sing a song,’ then he or she has to perform exactly that. It is a fun game and will encourage the students to participate.
You can stage a drama based on the book you have read in class. That way, many students will get the chance to participate. You can encourage students from other classes to be spectators and announce your show by making colorful posters.
Include the entire school and community
Instead of limiting the activities to classrooms only, you can arrange shows and events for the entire school or the community. You can have a painting, singing, or dancing competition. You can showcase one of Shakespeare’s famous plays.
You can invite professional singers or painters to perform at the show and encourage the students. By inviting famous artists to speak and share their stories, the students can understand that art is important for their careers as well.
Art clubs can be created where students can join and learn different forms of art. Competitions can be held to create a platform for showcasing the students’ talents.
These steps will help to promote art in school. You will notice that more students are getting engaged in art-related activities. Art can have a positive effect on students’ minds, and they will find this field very interesting.
