Journal for Learning through the Arts
As young people progress through school and through life, the visual and performing arts not only provide avenues for creative expression but also assist in the fashioning of cognitive tools and enhance interpersonal understanding. Drama, music, dance, creative writing, visual and digital art help bridge differences among academic disciplines, cultures, and generations. The sense of wonder engendered by the arts encourages wide-ranging interests that may support more systematic inquiry in later years. This journal invites articles from researchers, university faculty, teaching artists, and school district personnel who have explored the link between learning and the arts through empirical research or through deliberate and disciplined integration of the arts (1) across arts disciplines, (2) with other academic content areas, and/or (3) into community-based educational programs.
