Arts integration…Discover, Create, Integrate and Transform! Let’s make some powerful connections…through ART! Teaching within the scope of an art concept adds complexity and a higher level of thinking without adding difficulty. As well as being a perfect medium for student learning differentiation. Learning concepts through the arts facilitates and encourages imagination, curiosity and critical thinking. Learning through art makes classroom content more accessible; it engages all students, allowing them to take risks and discover the material in a fun and effective way.
