The New Zealand Curriculum statements for each of the Arts disciplines and their glossaries.
Art history may include a study of theories of the arts, architecture, and design. Theoretical investigations also inform practical inquiry.
Drama expresses human experience through a focus on role, action, and tension, played out in time and space. In drama education, students learn to structure these elements and to use dramatic conventions, techniques, and technologies to create imagined worlds.
Dance is expressive movement that has intent, purpose, and form. In dance education, students integrate thinking, moving, and feeling.
Through engaging in the visual arts, students learn how to discern, participate in, and celebrate their own and others’ visual worlds. Visual arts learning begins with children’s curiosity and delight in their senses and stories and extends to communication of complex ideas and concepts.
Sound from natural, acoustic, and digital environments is the source material for expressive ideas in music. These ideas are manipulated and extended into forms, genres, and styles that are recognised as music. Music is a fundamental form of expression, both personal and cultural.
