Arts Across the Curriculum

Exploring traditional subjects through art

Imagine 7th grade Life Science class—students explore local watersheds, collect samples, sketch the moss growing at their feet. After they return to the classroom, they view satellite images of watersheds and paint those images on silk.

In Algebra 2, students learn linear perspective by studying the work of Renaissance artist Alberti, who discovered the mathematical basis for linear perspective. They then develop their own formulae for plotting perspective in their artwork.

Instead of having students study art in academic classes, we invite students to actually create the art. The Arts Across the Curriculum program engages multiple intelligences through the arts. It exposes all students to the traditional subject matter in a tactile, sensory, and expressive way. By doing so, learning is deeply embedded—and often inspired.
“The drive cultivated at FA has allowed me to feel successful in my pursuits as an artist and designer both in college and as a graduate. Discussions in the classroom taught me to engage in critical dialogues.”  —Elliot Camarra ‘10, RISD ‘14, Artist, Textile Designer
