Creative Arts in Education

For a long time, the creative arts were losing ground in schools and universities to skills considered to be more useful and lucrative in competitive global markets. However, that tendency is beginning to reverse and educational establishments are changing their approaches to learning, sometimes quite radically, by giving more room to arts, sports and creativity in the curriculum. It is now being realised that encouraging creativity contributes greatly to producing balanced citizens who are capable of thinking independently, challenging conventional wisdom and understanding others.
