ARTinED

A new approach to education using the arts’, is a European Union funded education project that is designing innovative methodologies to add creativity in to schools through the arts, as a key component of every school subject.
European education has a critical need to find a way to weave creativity in to every aspect of the school curriculum, to not squeeze or under-utilize the arts as a key tool of nurturing creativity but to bring creativity through artistic expression in to every subject.
The arts play a fundamental role to support a student’s creative abilities, self-expression and learning abilities. They are a necessary tool especially when not thought as separate subjects but integrated throughout the curriculum. For example, dance in mathematics, drawing in history, music in languages etc.

RESOURCES
_______________________________________________________________

ARTinED has create a methodology and an in-service training course for stake-holders (teachers, authority curriculum experts) to enhance European teachers’ knowledge and confidence in using the arts in their daily teaching and use resources from schools across Europe.
The methodology will be based on piloting a practical example in primary schools across Europe. This will focus on how to teach environmental education. Environmental studies was chosen because it is a cross-curricular subject and will enable the project to give examples in a number of subject areas.
An example set of activities will be prepared and then piloted by primary school students. They will create art (drawings, paintings, writing, poetry, drama, sculpture, music and singing) in response to lessons on the environment.

Arts Background
Background  Reports – Use of individual Art Forms in Education

Introduction
The common view among primary school teachers is that using art in classes raises student interest and participation. Nevertheless, this endless resource is largely underused.
The Background Reports explain the concepts behind the educational value of each art form and address ways to integrate them into curriculum.  
According to Elbert Hubbard, American writer, publisher, artist and philosopher, art is not a thing; it is a way.
The Background Reports provide reasons for and benefits of integrating each art form to teach school subjects and explains how to do it by using specific examples in several subjects. A list of references is provided at the end of each section for further information.
