CBSE has issued a press note titled infusing joyful learning in classrom to make the art integrated education mandatory for class 1-12. According to the CBSE guidelines Art doesn’t only complies a particular subject but what we actually understand by integrated Art is, ‘It is a cross-circular approach to teaching and learning or teaching of a subject with the help of Art (visual/performing etc.) Art, in any of its form, therefore, becomes the primary path way to learn the subject/topic and also a way of assessment. The integration is meant not only to make the learning process joyful, but also to develop greater appreciation and understanding of the Art form being utilized for this purpose.’

The issuance will be adapted from this academic session. Minimum of two periods have been reserved per week, per class, for Art education. Major four streams of art has been included in the curriculum i.e. music, dance, visual arts and theater for all the classes from 1 to intermediate. The approach that will be followed to teach the students will be participatory, interactive and experimental rather than instructive.

Other than the four major Art forms, the students falling under classes 6-8 will also be introduced with culinary art. This initiative is to educate the students about value of nutritious food, crops and spices grown in India, oil extraction from various seeds etc.

Art integration is not a replacement for Art education. Integration happens only after students have been directly taught the Arts. Without this background knowledge neither students nor the subject teachers will be able to integrate Art in education. For example, the notes in Hindustani Classical Music can be aligned with the teaching of Fractions in Mathematics.

This is to be known as CBSE’s one of the smoothest declarations, as it will surely lure the students to be intacted more with the eminent education with the help of experimental learning.
