Arts Integration Enhancing Traditional Education

Arts integration uses the arts to help students engage in the use of all of their senses to access knowledge and communicate, not limiting their learning experience to linguistic forms of communicating and learning.  AI takes the benefits of the arts and of the academics, and through the integration leads students to extended ways of learning and demonstrating knowledge.
