Art Integration in Our Classrooms

Talking Points: Arts Education in Oklahoma — Oklahomans for the Arts

Arts Integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding THROUGH an art form

(Art is not used at the end of a unit as enhancement, art is used as a vehicle for learning to occur.)

"The purpose of STEAM should not be so much to teach the arts, but to apply them in real world situations, leading to deeper learning of STEM subjects."
