One of the strengths of the studio-concept in art is that students “turned-on” by content or concepts in other disciplines have a ready setting in which to pursue and extend their knowledge. Content and concepts originating in social studies or science classes may be interpreted through a variety of art materials and methods, integrating learning across disciplines.
