Perhaps you view Performing Arts Schools as places where they create the singing and dancing stars of tomorrow. Indeed ongoing research proves that performing arts activities play a key role in cognitive, motor, language and social emotional development. The fact is that school should be about more than the students’ performance on Test Day. The Wits Schools Liaison team forms the link between high school and university allowing a smooth transitional process for the student.
Perhaps those generally felt most applicable to the definition of ‘art school’ are the autonomous colleges or schools of art offering courses across both further and higher education boundaries, of which there are approximately eighteen, under the banner of United Kingdom Art & Design Institutions Association Others, whose existence ties in indelibly with that of larger, non-discipline-specific universities (such as the Slade School of Art ) exist.
The arts can then be classified into literary arts (poetry, prose, and drama), performing arts (music, dance, theatre) and visual arts (encapsulating the entire creative activities covered in the field of fine and applied arts: drawing, painting, sculpture, graphics, textile, etc).
Begin by exploring several of the schools found in your community to determine what their primary styles are. Amongst these are financial reasons (you cannot afford to go to a school), geographical reasons (no schools in your area) or self interest (you’re shy or have chosen an exotic MA).
It has been proven time and time again that the benefits of receiving an arts education are numerous. CACS was selected for the Distinguished School Award by the California Department of Education to honor schools that are inspirational and exemplary, and who have made strides to close the achievement gap.
