The North Carolina Museum of Art deals with arts integration on a regular basis. They lead art teachers and classroom teachers to develop a common language across disciplines. It is important to open a conversation to find connections across disciplines. Works of art can provide a structure for this. Teachers construct a concept map together from an image that can lead them to cross curricular connections. Check out these links for awesome resources to help the collaboration process.
