CBSE makes Arts a compulsory subject from next academic session

April 15, 2019

The Delhi-based CBSE has mandated introduction of Arts subject for all classes from the upcoming academic session and advised schools to introduce cooking classes as part of “culinary art” for classes VI-VIII.

Every school should compulsorily reserve a minimum of two periods per week for art education in four major spheres– music, dance, visual arts and theatre.

In addition, the students of classes 6-8 should also be introduced to culinary art. “The exposer will help students learn the value of nutritious food, about the crops and spices grown in India, how oil is extracted from various seeds and good agricultural practices,” PTI quoted a senior official.

“As far as possible, schools may introduce a few cooking classes where girls and boys participate as equals, as a part of art education in any one of the grades 6, 7 or 8,” the official said.

Schools are free to devise their own processes with two pre-conditions–all safety aspects shall be well taken care of and it should be a fun learning activity.

The decision was taken after the board held discussions with several stakeholders, including schools, principals, teachers, NCERT and art professionals.
