Summary/Abstract: The arts afford ways of knowing with proven rewarding consequences on the life quality of individuals and of communities. The benefits of exercising an imaginative capacity, esthetic reasoning and attitudes, and ability to interpret and communicate ideas have been shown to be fundamental to the well-being of individuals and communities. The literature is thus full of arguments as to why arts should not be reduced to mere adjuvant routes instrumental to learning in other areas. This paper proposes a discussion of some of the main arguments in the literature for an integrated approach to arts curriculum and pedagogy, with particular emphasis on the Romanian discursive practices concerning arts education.
