Lifelong Journey: An Education in the Arts.
Larson, Gary O.
This pamphlet outlines the National Endowment for the Arts' (NEA's) principles for lifelong learning in the arts and identifies four broad areas that guide the NEA's planning and support. The four areas include: (1) "Pre-K to Post-Secondary Arts Education"; (2) "Pre-Professional and Professional Development in the Arts"; (3) "Avocational Arts Education"; and (4) "Tradition-Based Learning in the Arts." Each of these areas is briefly described with examples. The "Principles and Characteristics of Excellence in Arts Education" and the "Statement of Principles," guiding the beliefs in a quality education and for a lifelong education in the arts, also are defined.
