Arts Integration

Our school’s arts-integrated curriculum is the result of a collaborative approach to planning that involves classroom teachers and the arts specialist team.  LFCSA has adopted the Kennedy Center’s comprehensive arts integration definition.
“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.”
Here you will find:

  • Arts Integration at LFCSA, including documentation, open source curriculum, and more!
  • LFCSA’s Catalyst Network resources concerning Catalyst conferences, Free Educator Days, and other professional development opportunities for teachers, artists, teaching artists, education advocates, policy makers, and school administrators
  • An archive with additional arts integration resources designed by other schools, non profits, arts organizations, teachers and learners that continue to inspire our work
