I have been involved in the arts my entire life, and as an educator, I have seen firsthand how the integration of meaningful art experiences into existing classroom curriculum can consistently lead to advancements in student learning and achievement. Areas such as critical thinking, problem-solving, authentic learning, teamwork, and intrinsic motivation, are all enhanced when art becomes a systematic part of the classroom landscape. For this reason, I’m very enthusiastic about showing other teachers – regardless of their art backgrounds – how easy it can be to incorporate this simple yet profound element into the curriculum they are already teaching – with spectacular results!
