Integrating Art into Core Subject Area Projects

FACILITATOR QUESTIONS

  • How can the integration of VPA into the core curriculum enrich our students learning experience?
  • How do we facilitate co-teaching of VPA faculty with core academic faculty?
  • How do we assess the projects?
  • Will there be options of dual credit in the near future? (example: Greenhill offers art and science credit electives: 'Drawing and Botany',  'Chemistry of Dyes')
