The value of arts education: A video
This 14-minute film does a great job detailing the impact of arts education on the development of children’s cognitive, artistic, social and psychological development.
The film, "Enlivening the Senses: Arts|Learning at the Core of Education," was created through a partnership between the nonprofit organization Arts/Learning and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
The film was made by Derek LeDoux, the producer and director, and Andrew Swaine, director of photography, who have worked together on documentaries, television pilots and other projects. Aaron Shadwell edited the film.
Arts/Learning encourages active engagement of preschool through college students in developing their highest artistic and academic competence by promoting practices, programs and partnerships to achieve a new level of excellence in teaching and curriculum development.
The video is also available to watch, or for sharing, at http://artslearning.org/video.
