What is Arts Integration?

Arts integration is a method of teaching and learning that incorporates various arts media into core academic courses as the primary pathway to learning. Arts integration differs from traditional arts education by its inclusion of both an arts discipline and a traditional subject as part of learning (e.g. using drama/theater skills to learn about conflict in writing.) The goal of arts integration is to increase knowledge of a general subject area while concurrently fostering a greater understanding, appreciation and culture of the various arts media.
