A very effective and engaging way to teach arts curriculum is through the use of fun group games and activities.
Many group games and activities are ideally suited to the development and practise of certain arts skills because they are inherently creative and attractive to play. Group activities can explicitly or implicitly help students grow in their knowledge and use of basic art skills through play.
Key skills such as expression, performance, creativity, imagination and context, can all be taught through the use of specific experiential group games and exercises.
