Writing with Pictures, Painting with Words: Visual Art and Writing

Visual Art in an Integrated Curriculum 

K-12 art educators and administrators
What is the place of art when a school is interested in arts integration? What is the balance of isolated instruction in the art form and collaboration with other disciplines?

Curriculum in the art form will be examined to find where and when integrated instruction is a good fit, and when it isn’t.
