Introduction

Arts integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both. There are countless benefits to arts integration in the classroom. Some include addressing multiple intelligences, higher engagement, constructing deeper meaning, and increased retention of information. You do not need to be an artist to bring the arts into your own classroom.
