Special Pedagogical Projects in Arts Education
A number of public and private schools have established special pedagogical projects in arts education. There are two types of projects:
- Concentration in Arts Education Projects
- Arts/Study Programs
They are designed to provide students with enriched arts education based on one of the four arts programs in the Québec Education Program:
- Visual Arts
These projects share the following characteristics:
- The projects have an impact on the subject-time allocation.
- With some exceptions, all of the arts education is provided at the school by qualified staff members of the school board or private school.
These projects reflect a desire to provide students with special arts instruction that will help them flourish and, in some cases, prepare them for higher education in the arts.
