Ukraine/ 8.3 Arts and cultural education  

8.3.2 Arts in schools

According to Governmental Decree Nr 1717 of 17 November 2000 relating to "State Standards of Primary Education", "Arts" was introduced as an educational sphere in the primary school curriculum. The Decree stated that: "Contrary to the traditional approach to the educational content in primary schools, when two relatively separate disciplines, Music and Visual Arts are taught, the educational sphere of Arts is directed to involve students in creative activities in musical, visual, choreographic, theatrical and screen arts. On the basis of such interaction of different arts, students will form a comprehensive artistic mentality, a system of aesthetic ideals and tastes, and a feeling of real responsibility for preservation of cultural achievements of society. It is reasonable to interconnect this educational sphere with other humanities (for example, choreographic courses can be integrated with "physical education"; elements of theatrical art – with "reading")".

In 2016/2017, there were 1 296 art schools embracing different directions (see Table below).
