    Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is set to introduce art-integrated project work for classes 1 to 10 from this academic session. Also, a notification on the same is released on the official website.

The introduction of art-integrated learning is an initiative towards Competency Based Education (CBE).

    Arts teachers and subject teachers must derive a plan of action for implementing the projects at the commencement of the academic session so that they will be able to guide the students to undertake various projects.

Also, students of classes 1 to 8 would be encouraged to take at least one art-integrated project in a given academic year.
