Check my post about Mark Kistler. He talks about the 12 Renaissance Words for Art. There are videos that you might be able to get through your PBS station. I found he always made the connections between science, math, and creativity part of the art experience.
Mark has a website. Even if you don't use the videos with the kids, you will mostly likely get valuable information from his work.
Have a great day,
