Conclusion: Evidences of Artistic Thinking in the Schools
This chapter synthesizes the salient findings of the studies in this book. It argues how the arts can become a resource for educational theory, research and practice. It found that engagement with the arts remains the optimal response in the effective nurturance of skills, dispositions and competencies needed in the education for the future. Placing centrality to artistic thinking in the schools means teaching learners to acquire the habits of mind that lend aesthetic quality to all experiences inside and outside of the arts classrooms. Acquiring the ability of imbuing everyday experiences with aesthetics will develop lifewide, lifedeep and lifelong learning.
