Comprehensive Art Education Summary

Comprehensive arts education is an approach to learning in and through the arts that centers instruction on works of art, embraces a strong assessment component, and derives content from four foundational art disciplines that contribute to the creation, understanding and appreciation of art: art production, art history, art criticism and aesthetics. The North Texas Institute for Educators on the Visual Arts (NTIEVA) embraces a comprehensive approach to the development of teaching and learning resources for use by classroom teachers, art specialist teachers, school administrators and museum personnel.
