Don Bennett, District Fine Arts Coordinator
The Arts are essential for the development of the whole child. Through the four major disciplines of Visual Art, Dance, Drama and Music, the Arts draw upon virtually all of the different intelligences, and activate nearly every region of the brain. Whether taught with an integrated approach for the younger learners or with a more specialized focus for those in higher age groups, they are as vital as every other learning area such as literacy and numeracy, and as important as physical activity for every child's well-being.
