Arts integration with KID smART Mission: KID smART engages children in dynamic, creative, and rigorous learning through the arts. What is arts integration? Arts integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject and meets evolving objectives. KID smART blends math, science, social studies and English with different art forms to make classrooms more joyful and effective places to learn. KID smART offers a variety of professional development opportunities that foster creative thinking, depth of learning, and joyful engagement in classrooms. We also provide arts enrichment in afterschool and community-based programs and work alongside others to advocate for the arts and broaden the conversation around the definition of student achievement.
