Whether children have the opportunity to perform, assist in production or help out behind the scenes, studying Drama not only engages with the creative side of the brain, it also provides an ideal balance in students’ patterns of study. Drama allows an avenue to develop cognitive abilities that complement study in other disciplines. Drama students learn to approach situations in a variety of ways which develop creative thinking and help to adapt to new study techniques. Dramatic exploration can provide students with an outlet for emotions, thoughts, and dreams that they might not otherwise have means to express. A student can, if only for a few moments, BECOME ANOTHER, explore a new role, try out and experiment with various personal choices and solutions to very real problems-problems in their own life, or problems faced by characters in literature or historical figures.
Students in art classrooms at all instructional levels, can use their creativity to solve problems and to express their ideas. Art teachers are adept in the knowledge and skills that foster creativity.They use the visual arts curriculum to enable their students to explore their own creative powers.
