Cultural education involves teaching students skills in an art or cultural field. While these skills can be obtained at schools and tertiary institutions, there are a variety of other organisations involved in teaching the arts, such as Technical and Further Education (TAFE) colleges, community learning centres, and adult education centres.

Arts education covers the teaching of skills specific to the fields of literature, television, radio, film, visual arts and crafts, design, music, performing arts and other arts. Skills taught include creative writing, acting, dancing, singing, music composition, music playing, visual design, radio, television and film production, post-production and direction, photography, and sound engineering and recording.
