Why Integrate Fine Arts?
"We must provide different pathways for students to demonstrate what they know: reading, writing, speaking, singing, dancing, drawing, and other formats. Incorporating the arts helps ensures that the needs of different types of learners are met." - Jane Fung, Center for Teaching Quality
Fine Arts as an Assessment Tool
"The arts are a great learning tool and can serve as an on-ramp to STEM for underrepresented students. Engaging students' strengths using art activities increase motivation and the probability of STEM success." - Ruth Catchen, STEAM developer, Colorado
"Both (artists and scientists) are involved in deep inquiry. The results are quite different, but the fascination and the research and the extensive questioning are parallel." - Patricia Miranda, "Steam" exhibit curator
"Art and design skills are necessary to foster the kind of creative thinking and innovation that make revolutionary ideas like the iPhone possible." - David Cole, STEAM curriculum develope
"By using Arts integration, teachers and leaders can ensure that students are learning in a way that meets their own unique cultural, social, emotional, and intellectual needs." - Susan Riley, arts integration specialist
Art helps engage students who are not rote learners." - Nettrice Gaskins, media and technology expert

Art is an under-utilized form of assessment.
*K-2 students still learning how to write
*ELL students struggling to communicate
*Visual and kinesthetic learners
*Science at all ages!

Why We Use Art
Enhances school climate and parental involvement
Provides multiple entry points for students by linking content in other subject areas; students make deep and meaningful connections
Studying art without the fear of getting something wrong encourages self confidence and risk-taking in the classroom and promotes collaboration
Acts as an on-ramp for underrepresented populations and struggling students
Provides many avenues for realization and recognition; naturally incorporates visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning
Teaching is more rewarding when students are learning in authentic ways and actually enjoy what they're learning.
Not to mention, the end results never fail to make you smile.
