Sharon,
If you are looking for a book, a great resource is The Arts as Meaning
Makers: Integrating Literature and the Arts Throughout the Curriculum. by
Claudia E. Cornett 1999 Prentice Hall. I got it through Amazon.com. In the
introduction chapter it cover teaching with, about and through the arts. It
also gives a rationale for the importance of art in academics. The book does
not only cover visual art, it also includes music, drama, dance and movement.
If you are looking for an institution, Lesley College in Cambridge has a
graduate program that specializes in Creative Arts in Learning. The courses
include visual art, storytelling, music, drama and movement. You might be
able to get some information to support your research through this college.
I just remembered another great book: Arts and Learning by Merryl Goldberg.
More info on using art in an academic setting. I really liked this book as
well.
Good luck!
