Panel Discussion: Collaboration is the Key to Arts Integration Success!
Arts integration combines two distinct learning domains – arts and academics - for the common purpose of improving students’ educational success. When teaching artists work with schools and community agencies to integrate arts into the curriculum, children who often have difficulties in traditional learning settings will flourish. Through this case study panel, learn about best practices in arts integration and the types of collaborations that can make it possible.

Also learn how the problem of transportation, often the stumbling block for participation, can be solved creatively.
