Benefits of Art Integration in Education
One of our middle schools will be a school of fine arts in the Fall and I am very interested in the concept. In a time where arts is often first on the chopping block, the focus on fine arts, rather than the cutting of it, is a welcomed idea.
I came across this article on research-based approaches to art integration in middle school through a program called 'artful thinking'
I wanted to share some of the article here as it shows some clear evidence on the benefits of art integration in education in some obvious and less obvious areas of learning and development.
