The Importance of Art Education in Day Boarding Schools

Art Education means many things to different people, but the core of it is that it transmits knowledge and education in different fields of arts like music, dance, and visual arts, etc. Society and industry have transformed in such a way that the activities that were earlier performed by humans are being performed by machines in very little time and without any hassles.
