This book aims to help teachers integrate art into their content to help with deeper understanding on multiple sensory levels.

Art teachers know, when we grid, measure, and draw-we use geometry. When we make sculptures-we use engineering. When we mix colors-we reveal information about physics. When we create illustrations for stories-we learn about literature. When we review the styles of art from da Vinci to Bansky-we teach history. When we write about art-we strengthen these skills. When we create works of art, we solve complex visual problems in creative ways.

Research shows that students who take art succeed at higher rates than those who do not. In the U.S., art students score, on average, 100 points higher on their SATs. In my own district, using my methods, our students scored 155 points higher on average than students who did not take art in 2013.

If your school is STEAM focused, this is the book for you! (S.T.E.A.M.: Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics)
