I spoke with one student about her experiences with her family. She shared about her parents’ divorce and her grandmother passing away. Pretty heavy stuff but her writing and painting seemed to help her process it. Brought me to tears.

Arts Integration, as defined by The Kennedy Center, is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both.

Heather helped me adapt my project to virtual learning....The work that students produced was powerful. The captions they wrote gave me a glimpse into their emotions and the new normal of their daily lives.

Using cardboard, tape and markers, our kiddo became a hockey goalie, suited up and ready to play! It shows the child's ability to use and work with the materials as he/she wishes - no limits, no directions - just pure intrinsic desire to design.

"The conversation was multilayered and rich...we reached them [the students] in meaningful way."     

While working with Heather I have discovered the importance of the trial and error learning process. The arts integration design supports this rigorous thinking by celebrating the mistakes and working to  revise their stories and art. My students showed increased confidence, understanding, excitement, and pride during the process!

Heather helped me see a new way to teach challenging topics in medicine. She really coached us through the development of our session on burnout using photography. Our medical interns engaged with both the medical content and the photography content at a level I couldn't have achieved without the integration of art into this session. The discussion was multilayered and rich and the feedback from our learners proved that we reached them in a meaningful way.
