Art is the expression of an Individual. It is experiential learning. Now Art education is a part of the curriculum from classes 1 to 10 from 2019-20. Art as a subject covers major spheres of learning.
Some of the examples of activities that can facilitate art integrated learning can be photography, drawing, painting, collage, culinary art, creative writing, Drama and puppetry, movement and dance, music, performing arts, etc. Art integrated learning provides deeper learning. The objective of it is to make learning experimental or hands-on. It includes collaborative teaching and learning. It results in the development of problem
solving and reflective skills.
As art education provides creative inquiry opportunities for hands-on learning to students, incorporates values and life skills. So it was decided that rubrics need to be discussed by both subject and art teachers and the criteria need to be informed to students well in hand to make it fair enough. More details on art education are available on various NCERT websites. Sample lesson plan format was given, where all the teachers made a group with respect to their subjects, discussed and wrote the lesson plan by integrating art in a 40 minutes period. It was submitted at the end of the session.
