Arts Exposure relates to the importance of providing real world context to students. By experiencing the arts, either as a creator, participant, or audience member, students learn about themselves and the complex world around them. In-school programming by professional artists reinforces the arts curriculum, while showcasing career paths. Artists also provide an inspirational model of the discipline, skill, and perseverance required to achieve excellence. Off-site student visits to art museums, theatres, or other arts venues demonstrate that the world outside school provides countless opportunities for discovery and active learning, encouraging students to become life-long learners engaged in their communities. The interface between the arts sector and a school is an essential component of a comprehensive arts education and sustains a community culture of well-rounded citizens who value creativity.
