The role of art in creating high-ranking or civilized societies and countries has been recognized and recognized by the state. Art is a manifestation of the civilization of a nation’s life. Theater, Dance, Music, Fine Arts, Cinematography, Fine Arts and so on are the fundamental principles practiced in art and complement to quality life. All developed countries in the world have stressed the importance of training and encouraging art either through formal training or other incentives among its people. Achievements, quality, and facilities for art activities are often associated with living standards and are also one of the international measuring gauges in determining the level of progress in a country. At present, artistic roles have been accepted as one of the elements of national development that is capable of generating quality life. Through an art-based education training, a society will be able to embody a prudent and civilized human capital. This matter has been acknowledged by various parties and through government machinery, they have taken action in their respective jurisdictions.
Implementing quality art programs can not be accomplished by simply allowing the program to run alone in schools only. Art, as well as other development programs, needs to be guided, nurtured and designed in a structured manner through care, guidance and training programs. The outstanding achievement of international artistic talents is a commitment that needs to be done with the commitment of all relevant parties.
The Ministry of Education Malaysia (MOE) has been energizing and making plans in line with the National Education Policy and National Culture Policy as well as Chapter 23 Ninth Malaysia Book of Nothing related to Enriching Culture, Arts and Heritage to create a complete, excellent and caring Malaysian society. Various programs covering guidance, care, and training have been implemented in schools in line with the developments in the education-oriented diversity of skills and intelligence so that today’s generation will be more able to face the reality of the world of work whose competition is very fierce and challenging.
KPM’s pure intention to uphold the Arts Education in schools is in line with the Mission and Vision of the Ministry of Culture, Arts, and Heritage (KeKKWa) towards the creation of a Malaysian nation rich in heritage and artistic heritage.
MOE has carried out art activities in the program as follows:
- Arts in Teaching Lessons,2.
- Arts In Co-curriculum,
- Training of Teachers of Education,
- Exercise Executives Executive School,
- Art Appreciation Program,
- Arts Internationalization Program.
However, KPM is of the view that this venture has yet to achieve the aspirations and niches to foster and help pupils to empower the culture and strengthen the identity of the Malaysian nation as our nation’s education system needs to be comprehensive and it is not merely academic-oriented. In fact, to achieve the filling of a developed nation, the education system must produce a society that follows its own culture, culture, and language.
Realizing that, it is time and time for MOE to set up the Malaysian Art School (SSeM) which will provide opportunities and opportunities for young Malaysians to work in art and not just depend on their particular career but instead they can form a career in art such as Music, Dance, Theater or Visual Arts.
