About Arts Education


As of 2013, Tennessee is the fastest growing state for academic improvement. Arts education can contribute to this growth by supporting learning both in and through the arts.

The Tennessee Arts Commission offers strategies to bring together educators, artists, and community partners to recognize the arts as essential to learning in a variety of instructional settings from the classroom to the community and beyond.

Arts Integration

Arts integration supports learning both in and through the arts. Teachers of non-arts subjects work alongside arts specialists and teaching artists to create collaborative lesson plans that infuse creativity into learning.
