Arts Integration

Students test paints in an integrated art and science lesson.

Arts Integration is instruction combining two or more content areas, wherein the arts constitute one or more of the integrated areas. The integration is based on shared or related concepts, and instruction in each content area has depth and integrity reflected by embedded assessments, standards, and objectives. Integrated instruction is often designed, implemented, and evaluated in collaboration with other teachers, arts teachers, community artists, and institutions; and delivered, experienced and assessed through a variety of modalities: artistic processes, inquiry methods, and intelligences.
