The Arts Integration Institute is a collaborative effort to infuse arts instruction across the curriculum. Dedicated to deepening student learning and appreciation for the arts, while raising student achievement, the institute provides opportunities for teachers in the arts and in other disciplines to learn or update their skills in integrating the arts into the curriculum.
