"The best way to "know" a thing is through the context of another discipline"
Artful Learning is a school improvement model that stimulates and deepens academic learning through the Arts.
Artful Learning is adaptable to any learning community or educational system. Its ﬂexibility allows it to be integrated into other school-site initiatives or serve as the central instructional methodology. The arts-based skills and strategies magnify student engagement and demonstrably improve cognition, as well as provide differentiation to meet the needs of all learners.
The four main quadrants of the Artful Learning model (EXPERIENCE, INQUIRE, CREATE and REFLECT) encourage and support best teaching practices while improving the manner in which both students and teachers learn. Classrooms systematically employ the four quadrants to strengthen understanding, retention and application.
