I have not personally seen this book... but it is a top seller.
"Bridging the Curriculum through Art: Interdisciplinary Connections.
Focuses on the relationship that comprehensive, quality art education
has with curriculum content and learning outcomes. Included in this
book are cross-curricular lessons developed and field-tested by art
specialists and classroom teachers, each designed to explore artists
and works of art, are intended as a starting point for art
exploration. 144 pages, paperback."
Most of the research that shows how art improves learning - is for all
the arts (not just visual art). Kids need comprehensive arts.
