Five Ways to Integrate: Using Strategies from Contemporary Art
Marshall, Julia
Art Education, v63 n3 p13-19 May 2010
This article is for art teachers of all levels who want to teach through art and about art. The purpose of this article is twofold. It provides evidence that integration is a significant, lively and authentic art practice today and, therefore, studying about art and integrating it are compatible. It also offers teachers and students in elementary, middle and high school some concrete and doable art-based ways to connect art with the academic curriculum. This article presents five current art models based on five conceptual strategies or approaches contemporary artists develop to manipulate ideas and imagery to make meaning. All of these strategies involve interpretation, reinterpretation, and/or re-contextualization. (Contains 8 figures, 1 table, and 1 endnote.)
