In the present and looking towards the future, this is the generation of culture and art, of sensitivity and creativity. Acting on these cultural changes, the Education Center for the Gifted in Arts offers opportunities of self-realization to gifted students as well as pursues social contribution through the development and fostering of creative human resources.
Since 1993, Korea National University of Arts has continuously produced excellent artists in the fields of music, dance, and Korean traditional arts through management of our art practice training courses. The Schools of Drama, Visual Arts, Film, TV & Multimedia, and the Cooperation Course have created an environment with an excellent infrastructure to promote creative and reflective thinking across genres. The Education Center for the Gifted in Arts will discover and manage gifted people more systematically based on experience and visions for the future. It will improve the quality of education and training for those gifted in the arts. In addition, it will offer gifted people who have been excluded for regional, economical, or cultural reasons the chance to contribute to social integration.
