What is literary arts education?

Basic art education in literary arts is a goal-oriented education which proceeds on a level by level basis. It is offered primarily for children and young people. Studying literary arts develops creativity, storytelling, language skills and self-expression. It leads to a broader and deeper understanding of multiliteracy in terms of linguistic diversity, linguistic expression and modes of representation.
