I. Recommendations of NEP 2020:
Para 4.7 of the National Education Policy 2020 recommends that:
“Art-integration is a cross-curricular pedagogical approach that utilizes various aspects and forms of art and culture as the basis for learning of concepts across subjects. As a part of the thrust on experiential learning, art-integrated education will be embedded in classroom transactions not only for creating joyful classrooms, but also for imbibing the Indian ethos through integration of Indian art and culture in the teaching and learning process at every level. This art-integrated approach will strengthen the linkages between education and culture”
II. Recommendations of NCFFS 2022
The National Curriculum Framework for Foundational Stage 2022 recommends in the para 1.4.3 that:
“Children express themselves, imagine, and create without any inhibition through the arts. The open-endedness and playful qualities of the arts encourage self-expression, intuition, reasoning, imagination, and communication. Children need to be supported with ideas and opportunities to draw, paint, print, create collages, construct structures with blocks. Children also love moving, dancing, exploring, and improvising with their bodies and playing musical instruments states.”

The Board has also issued Guidelines on Art-Integrated Learning vide Circular No. Acad-22/2019 dated 18.04.2019 with an aim to facilitate teachers and principals for implementing Art Integrated Learning as a pedagogical tool for experiential and joyful learning in classroom situation as well as building a joyful learning environment in the school.

II. Vide Circular no. Acad 33/2020 dated 14th May 2020, CBSE has introduced mandatory Art- Integrated Project work for classes I to X, as part of Subject-Enrichment activities under Internal Assessment.
III. Guidelines for the Art-Integrated Project Work:
i. Projects taken up by students should be age-appropriate and enable them to be developed as independent thinkers and learners.
ii. At least one Art-Integrated Project in each subject shall be taken up by all students of classes IX and X. For classes IX and X, the art integrated project work will be assessed as part of the subject enrichment activity in all the subjects for internal assessment.
iii. Students of classes I to VIII will also be encouraged to take at least one age- appropriate Art-Integrated Project (inter-disciplinary project) in a given academic year. The project work can include more than one subject and this can be considered for Internal Assessment in the subjects concerned.
iv. Projects for the students of classes 1 to 2 shall be in compliance with NCFFS 2020, as per the following recommendations given in the section 5.3.1 of NCFFS:
Projects, for this Stage, can be short and simple to be within the grasp of young childre. By nature, projects are interdisciplinary, involving as many subjects as language arts, social studies, math, science, art, drama, dance, and health- along with any number of real-life experiences.
v. Students will take up integration with any form of Indian Art – visual or performing, as it will be helpful to students to easily understand the project that is culturally connected to them. Teachers need to facilitate learning of the chosen Indian art form and ensure that the students are able to creatively integrate the art form(s) being used in the project.
vi. In minimum one project work of students from classes I -X, it is mandatory to integrate any art form of the paired State/UT, as defined under Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat Programme. Since during the last 3 years’ students are doing project work involving the same pair of States and UTs, the Board has prepared pairing of States and UTs for academic purpose as given in the Annexure-I for Art-Integrated Project work of students in the session 2023-24. This will give an opportunity to the students of CBSE Schools to familiarize with culture, tradition and geography of more States and UTs as envisaged in the Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat Programme (EBSB).
vii.Subject teachers along with Arts teachers must plan and discuss the projects in advance at the beginning of the academic session so that students can be given proper guidance to undertake various projects.
viii. The focus should be given on research of new topics that are not yet taken up in the classroom. Teachers must facilitate exploration of research on the topics to give students hands-on experience.
