ArtinAction Program Manager Kelly Bravo’s article: STEAM ON! Designing Art Lessons that Integrate with Core Curriculum was recently featured in Education Closet’s STEAMed digital magazine.  The article takes the reader through how we created our new Spirals in Nature lesson as Kelly provides advice on how to work with subject specialists, parent volunteers and classroom teachers on developing truly integrated art curricula.  Art in Action is a nonprofit organization which currently makes arts education accessible to 200 schools, 2,500 teachers and parents, and 50,000 students.  Each of Art in Action’s nine program levels has at least twelve sequential, age-appropriate lessons that provide a high-quality visual art curriculum. The multifaceted lessons develop students’ critical-thinking skills, creative confidence, hands-on skills, visual literacy, self-esteem, and an appreciation of other cultures.
