Dear JoAnn and all,

Check out Bridging the Curriculum Through Art by Pam Stephens and Nancy Walkup:

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.

I have links on my Advocacy page:

The claims I make at the top about the arts came from a site no longer on line.

If anyone makes a reply to this - cut out my email address.
