Basic Education in the Arts

Basic education in the arts is goal-oriented, progressing from one level to the next and especially aimed at children and young people. It aims to give students the skills required to express themselves, support creative thinking and actions as well as to promote sensitivity and empathy, and also to develop study and cooperation skills. At the same time, the student's growth, self-development and the ability to categorise the world around them become stronger.

Basic education in the arts also enables application to the vocational or university college-level education of the art in question. Besides the law and decree concerning it, the basic education in the arts is based on the curriculum accepted by the Finnish National Board of Education.
