ArtSmart


ArtSmart is: classroom study units and professional development that mine the rich educational opportunities inherent in exceptional works of performing and visual arts. ArtSmart develops the
natural curiosity and creativity of students of all abilities and learning styles, contributing to the
education of the whole child.

ASU AII
ARTSMART STUDY UNITS are multi-week Teacher/ Teaching Artist classroom partnerships that enhance the educational value of HOT Season for Young People performances. ArtSmart lessons give students in-depth preparation for the performance and reveal unexpected ways the work of art relates to their own lives and classroom learning. ARTS INTEGRATION INSTITUTES are multi-day workshops that empower teachers to create original arts integration units and projects for their students. Teachers actively explore works of art, ArtSmart teaching practice, and ways they connect to teaching and learning. The Institute includes dedicated planning time for teachers to develop their project ideas.

Aesthetic Education is the heart of ArtSmart. It is a teaching philosophy that values deep engagement with works of art for the broadened perspective and meaningful connections they can inspire. It is a work-of-art centered, inquiry-based, student-driven and multi-modal teaching practice that cultivates ways of knowing essential to a well-rounded education.
