The visual arts are art forms that create works that are primarily visual in nature, such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, design, crafts, photography, video, film making and architecture. But are not limited to that definition. There are many artistic disciplines. Think of all the Visual arts that have made an influence in your life....... There is substantial evidence that high-quality education in the arts provides students with opportunities to develop a number of capacities that are not well addressed in other areas of the curriculum,such as visual-spatial abilities, self-reflection, and experimentation. In addition, visual arts education has been shown to motivate students who might otherwise be at risk of dropping out of school. Twelve Benefits of Music Education
Music Education Advocacy Resources

1. Early musical training helps develop brain areas involved in language and reasoning.

2. There is also a causal link between music and spatial intelligence (the ability to perceive the world accurately and to form mental pictures of things). This kind of intelligence, by which one can visualize various elements that should go together, is critical to the sort of thinking necessary for everything from solving advanced mathematics problems to being able to pack a book-bag with everything that will be needed for the day.

3. Students of the arts learn to think creatively and to solve problems by imagining various solutions, rejecting outdated rules and assumptions. Questions about the arts do not have only one right answer.

4. Recent studies show that students who study the arts are more successful on standardized tests such as the SAT. They also achieve higher grades in high school.

5. A study of the arts provides children with an internal glimpse of other cultures and teaches them to be empathetic towards the people of these cultures.

6. Students of music learn craftsmanship as they study how details are put together.
