April 15, 2021. History + Art = FUN! "Middle school students attempted Play-doh versions of a pagoda…it’s harder than you think!" Middle School Instructor Mrs. Allen
At LCA our instructors are consistently tying art into many subjects...why?...it works!
In fact, researchers from the Johns Hopkins University School of Education, argue that instruction becomes more effective when educators integrate creative activities and make them central to academic development. Across disciplines, including STEM, there’s room to reimagine classes with a strong emphasis on drawing, painting, playing music, performing drama, and other creative pursuits. Encouraging students to use their imagination can help them actively engage with new concepts and discover connections between ideas as well as provide advantages for their social and emotional well-being.
