Abstract

Art plays an essential role in human life. Children and young people engage in and socialise through narratives, songs, roleplaying, stories, dance, photography, and other art forms in interaction with their daily experience. Sometimes, schools provide formal training in music, visual arts, or drama. However, there is not enough support for arts in schools, and its contribution to students’ well-being has not always been understood. This chapter starts with a review of the latest research about positive art and the role of art to promote well-being in school communities. It is argued that art should be accessible to all students across different school activities and practised in specific ways. The chapter aims to raise awareness of the benefits that arts can bring to students’ emotional development, mental health, and well-being.
