Arts Integration & Education

What happens when arts and cultural strategies are deployed towards community planning and development goals?
How can the arts sector support the outcomes already articulated by various fields within community development – housing, health, public safety, economic development, etc.?

ARTS INTEGRATION INSPIRES CREATIVITY AND INCREASES STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AT THE SAME TIME.

Arts Integration and Education bestow the powers of increased self-confidence and self-understanding, enhanced communication skills and improved cognition.

It is a research-based approach to teaching and learning that has proven results for the past 30 years.  For schools that commit to using arts integration with integrity, the results are astounding.  Schools that intentionally use arts integration find student achievement rises by 10% OR MORE across the board.

Creativity, innovation, and meaningful learning is needed in schools today, looking beyond traditional approaches (which yield very little result) toward Arts Integration ( S.T.E.A.M.*) that have a proven track record of working. Integrative Arts outcomes include:

  1.  Students ability to engage in critical thinking and construct personal meaning through their learning in arts integration.
  2.  Skill-building for innovative solutions through critical thinking perseverance capacities in all learners.
  3.  Arts Integration provides each student with a well-rounded education that meets the needs of the whole child or whole adult. Although typically focused on music, visual arts, drama, dance, and art history, integrating the arts across the curriculum is also key to ensuring that students are healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.

*STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
