Artful Learning

Salvador is now an Artful Learning School! This comprehensive school model is specially designed to engage students at a deeper level of inquiry and understanding than can be achieved with standard educational approaches. By providing educators with a unique framework to present academic content, Artful Learning links the arts and the artistic process to the daily classroom learning experience. Artful Learning employs an interdisciplinary approach that is anchored by a central Concept while posing a Significant Question that allow educators to teach a broad spectrum of rigorous academic content. Studying through the lens of the arts generates a measurably deeper level of comprehension and retention in students.

The Artful Learning interdisciplinary approach is designed to help students develop the capabilities that educators, parents and business leaders desire:

  • - analytical thinking across disciplines
  • - collaborative skills - objective judgement
  • - higher academic achievement
  • - a commitment to excellence
  • - technological competence
  • - productive citizens and workers
  • - appreciation for diversity
  • - global perspective
  • - adaptable learners
  • - creative and innovative solution-driven characteristics
