The opportunity to take students on an international trip to witness significant arts, music and drama performances is something that will stay with both students and teachers for life. At EA School Tours, we have identified an increase in teachers wanting to introduce their students to external educational experiences and we have developed some great tools to help teachers considering an international arts trips. Sample itineraries for our key destinations will assist with the planning process and provide information and tips to ensure students can learn more about the emerging creative industries and compliment their classroom learning.
According to a recent article by the Harvard Education Publishing Group, arts programs play an extremely important role in developing a positive school culture. A number of qualitative studies have reported that students who take part in arts, drama and music classes are experiencing impressive gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skill. In schools around the world, the language of culture and arts is being recognised for establishing greater student engagement, developing self-awareness and providing students with a much needed creative outlet.
Arts based curriculum assists with the development of knowledge and understanding, and taking students abroad to experience these subjects first-hand is sure to cement their passion. International school trips provide a platform which allows students to use the arts as a learning tool, while igniting their imagination further, and opening their minds to the past, present and future of arts around the globe.< back to the blog
