Art integration can be used as a tool to deepen understanding as well as enhance communication skills. Art integration extends student understanding by providing a context that connects the subject matter in real, concrete, relevant ways. Research shows that in art-integrated classrooms students score higher on achievement tests, and demonstrate an increase in critical thinking skills, self- confidence, and retention.
Study in 2001-2002 of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students shows a significant positive relationship between arts integration and student learning. Research shows that students who have taken art classes score have higher math, verbal, and composite SAT scores than students who do not.
Meets the needs of visual and kinesthetic learners Meets multiple needs with one lesson Allows students to actively engage in their learning Promotes higher level thinking Can positively influence learning and test scores
Test scores Higher thinking Concrete Communication Culture Ways to integrate Easier than expected
Artintegration with all subjects. More exposure, better results. Meaningful use of art. Worth the time.
