Artistic and cultural education complements traditional education. Therefore, this course facilitates access to art. But what are the roles of art and cultural education for children?
The cultural role of arts and cultural education
Arts and cultural education have three goals. This process invites students to establish a personal culture during their schooling. This learning also encourages artistic encounters as well as visiting cultural places. Artistic and cultural education thus feeds children's curiosity and personal culture. In addition, to get used to cultural institutions, institutions establish partnerships with entities that are focused on culture.
In addition, this partnership complements the teachings with cultural and artistic activities. Of course, to make this agreement a reality, the institutions are putting in place an artistic and cultural component within their administration. In addition, children are the animators of the artistic and cultural life of their school. Moreover, the children are assisted by cultural referents to supervise the activities and carry out all the projects of the establishment.
The social role of arts and cultural education
Artistic and cultural education satisfies their thirst for discovery of works. This is an opportunity to start some exchanges with artists, creators and professionals of culture and art. Similarly, it is a chance to discover the diversity of places and cultural actors. This learning also apprehends works and artistic productions. This branch of education also invites children to practice artistic expression techniques.
As part of an artistic and cultural project, children have the opportunity to integrate into a creative group. This opportunity allows them to concretize the presentation of an artistic production. Thus, arts and cultural education encourages students to express an aesthetic emotion. This learning also enriches their vocabulary in the cultural field. Finally, this experience puts their knowledge in the interest of understanding the work.
The artistic and cultural education course
The arts and cultural education program (PEAC) runs from kindergarten to baccalaureate. This path is integrated in the training of students during their educational activities. This training also includes artistic teachings, meetings with artists and works as well as artistic practices. This path goes into many areas of the arts, in this case the arts of space, the arts of language, the arts of everyday life ...
However, this training encourages children to focus on their studies. However, each school has its own motivation. Other humanitarian organizations such as the Hédi Bouchamaoui Foundation opt for motivation through giving. With the businessman Tarek Bouchamaoui, the foundation offered school supplies for children in Gabès, Tunisia, to encourage them to continue their education. Thus, Tarek Bouchamaoui and his foundation hope to increase the school success rate in Tunisia.
