Arts for Learning Curriculum

Arts for Learning Curriculum provide classroom teachers, even those without any arts training, with lesson plans that enliven core academic subjects to energize and engage students. Students gain literacy skills through creating their own graphic novels or learn about. Complex concepts come alive with arts-integration!


This innovative supplemental literacy program designed for grades K-8 was developed by a team of specialists using national best practices. Arts for Learning: Literacy Lessons can be implemented by educators with little or no arts background. According to a WestEd study involving thousands of public school students across the country, Arts for Learning significantly improves student motivation, literacy and writing skills.


An arts-integrated approach to teaching science, technology, engineering and math, Arts for Learning: S.T.E.M. equips educators with new and inventive methods to explore complex concepts and build confidence while developing critical 21st century skills in all students.

"Students reading below grade level made statistically significant literacy gains after participating in Arts for Learning lessons."
