CBSE releases guidelines for art education and art integrated learning

PUBLISH DATE 16th May 2020

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued important guidelines for implementation of Art-Integrated Learning projects for Class 1 to 10 students.

The guidelines have been issued with an aim to facilitate teachers and principals for implementing Art Integrated Learning as a pedagogical tool for experiential and joyful learning in classroom situation as well as building a joyful learning environment in the school.

As per the CBSE guidelines, the one of the objectives of art integrated education is to make the students aware of the vast and diverse cultural heritage of our country. Therefore, Students will take up integration with any form of Indian Art - visual or performing, as it will be helpful to students to easily understand the project that is culturally connected to them.

Classes I-VIII, Art Integrated Project should be of trans-disciplinary nature. The project work can include more than one subject and this can be considered for Internal Assessment in the subjects concerned.

In minimum one project work of students from classes I -X, it is mandatory to integrate any art form of the paired State/UT, as defined under "Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat Programme". For example, Art Integrated Project Work of the students of the schools in the State of Delhi will be based on the art form of Sikkim and so on.

Subject teachers along with Arts teachers must plan and discuss the projects in advance at the beginning of the academic session so that students can be given proper guidance to undertake various projects.

  1. The focus should be given on research of new topics that are not yet taken up in the classroom. Teachers must facilitate exploration of research on the topics to give students hands-on experience.
  2. The project should be taken up in an eco-friendly manner, using readily available local resources without any financial burden on parents or guardians.
  3. The Project should be done by students in groups with 4-5 students in each group.
  4. The marks awarded for these projects, as part of subject-enrichment activities of class X, will be collected by the Board at the time of uploading of marks of internal assessment.
  5. Art-Integrated Learning (AIL) as a Pedagogical Tool from classes I to XII
  6. Art-Integrated Learning (AIL) will continue as a pedagogical tool for classes I to XII, in addition to the Art Education under co-scholastic area as provided in the Secondary School Curriculum of the Board.
  7. The objective of AIL is not to promote arts and skills of arts but to use art as a tool to teach other subjects. The focus here should be to accept arts as medium of the learning process.
