The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse

Ever since our school became an Visual and Performing Arts Magnet we have been working towards arts integration. It is definitely a work in process!
What is arts integration?
"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."

  1. Arts integration practices are aligned with how students learn.
  2. Arts integration energizes teachers by providing increased professional satisfaction.
  3. Arts integration is aligned with some major trends in education:
  • 21st Century Skills
  • Differentiated Instruction
  • Universal Design for Learning
  • The Whole Child
To learn more about arts integration go to: The Kennedy Center: ArtsEdge

The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse is a wonderful book that encourages us to express our "inner artist" written by Eric Carle.
