SW, Zanna and all, I agree and believe there is a sense of fear among
arts educators that integration promotes to primarily serve the needs
of the regular classroom. What happens is a watering down of our
discipline in visual art education ending up making salt maps for
geography, etc. However, I do believe that the richness and quality of
what we can deliver to students, artistically gifted as well as for all
students, comes through interdisciplinary and DBAE focused learning.
Also I believe this holds true for all students K-12 and beyond. I
prefer the term interdisciplinary over integration as for me it connotes
pulling threads from other disciplines to 'Art', preserving and
supporting the learning that 'Art" delivers first, and foremost, as the
point of departure and the return.

Yours in Art & Life,
