As a way to support requirements of the Arts Education for Workforce Development Act ( House Bill 10-1273 ) that was passed by the Colorado General Assembly in 2010, an Arts Education Implementation Task Force convened to support efforts to prepare students for a creative and competitive 21st century workforce. Korea’s educational system, including primary (K-6th grade), secondary (7th-12th grade) and tertiary (college and beyond) education, is strongly premised on the philosophy of liberal education. Education started from basic reading, writing, and religion, then higher learning in law, medicine, and astrology.
These schools focus their trainings on the visual arts such as illustration, painting, advertising design, graphical arts, photography, sculpture, and other artistic expressions. To expand the knowledge in real terms through the arts and crafts projects, the construction of a volcano or a microscope is recommended to the students at the sixth grade level.
