Section A: There are four emphasis in art education: music, visual arts, dance, and theater. Each one is just as important as science, social studies, language arts, and mathematics. Art education is a way for students to be creative, express themselves, build their self-confidence, and become overall better students in the classroom. Just like in science, social studies, language arts, and mathematics; students need to grow in art education. Art education fosters social, emotional, physical, intellectual, cognitive, and motor development of students. It is important for students to be provided opportunities for self-expression and self-exploration. Art education provides students with such opportunities to do so. It is key for academic success. The first emphasis in art education is music. Music is art concerned with combining vocal or instrumental sounds for beauty of form or emotional expression, usually according to cultural standards of rhythm, melody, and, in most Western music, harmony (Music, 2014). It is arranged in a series of tones known as melodies. The tones are characterized by the pitch, intensity, duration, and timbre (Gelineau, 2004). The rhythm of a piece of music is made up of long and short sounds and silences in the beat. There are many different forms of music. Several forms of music include: symphony, opera, concerto and more. Music in the classroom consists of singing, playing instruments, moving, listening, creating, and reading music. Music is used for expression, to soothe, move, inspire, heal, unite, and for many other things. It helps in the development of social, cognitive, affective, motor, and creative areas in students. Music helps students become better critical thinkers and problem solvers. Music has been proven to help students who are deaf, autistic, or speech-delayed. It can alleviate problems of mentally, emotionally, and physically challenged students. Music helps students develop memory skills, intellect, and helps with language development. Music provides students with experiences to improve their self-esteem and inner strength. The second emphasis in art education is art. Like music, art is often referred to as the “universal language,” for it speaks to us from everywhere (Gelineau, 2004). Paintings, drawings, sculptures, architecture, photography, and more are creations of art. Line, space, form, shape, color, and texture are the elements of art and each element is used to create a piece of artwork. An artist uses the principles of art when the elements are assembled to create a satisfactory work of visual art. The principles of art include: balance, emphasis, rhythm, unity, variety, proportion and more. Art is a way for students to communicate their ideas, feelings, thoughts, and beliefs. It develops creativity and offers opportunities for self-fulfillment in students. Art helps in the development of psychomotor, affective, and cognitive skills. It is a way for students to explore and express themselves. The third emphasis in art education is dance. There are many different types of dance. Examples of the types of dances are ballet, ballroom, modern, country, jazz, tap, folk, break, and theatre. Dance is a form of expression using bodily movements to the rhythm of music. Body articulation, space, force, energy, intensity, and time are the elements of dance. All dance is made up of either locomotor or nonlocomotor movements. It unifies the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of human beings. It helps develop affective, aesthetic, psychomotor, and socio-cultural skills in students. Movement plays a vital role in student learning. The fourth emphasis in art education is drama. Drama is human expression by using the five senses, physical body, imagination, speech, emotions, and intellect. Different types of drama include: pantomime, improvisation, tableau, puppetry, and more. Drama teaches students about life and how to listen, imagine, and express themselves creatively.
