The intrinsic value of arts education is that it cultivates the whole student. In addition to advancing creative skills, arts education also encourages the development of essential attitudes, characteristics and intellectual abilities such as reasoning, creativity, dexterity, problem solving and teamwork. At Unionville College, we have an exemplary arts & drama programme that encompasses performing arts (drama and speech arts), music and visual arts. We teach that the arts have meaning beyond the aesthetic; they are relevant courses of study applicable in many aspects of life. Art is everywhere in life, and being able to understand and appreciate it adds to living life completely. More directly, the arts encompass a multitude of professions, and students can use what they learn at UC throughout their educational levels and make a valuable contribution to society.
