The Arts in Humanities (Visual Art, Music, Dance, Drama) reflect the beliefs, feelings, and ideals of those sho create them. Experiencing the arts allows one to experience time, place and/or personality. By experiencing the arts of various cultures, students can actually gain insight into the beliefs, feelings, and ideas of those cul,tures. Students also have the opportunity to experience how the arts can influence society through analysis of arts in their own lives and the arts of other cultures and historical periods. Studying the historical and cultural stylistic periods in the arts offers students an opportunity to understand the world past and present, and to learn to appreciate their own cultural heritage. Looking at the interrelationships of multiple arts disciplines (visual arts, music, dance, drama) across cultures and historical periods is the focus of humanities in the arts.
