Arts Integration in Missouri 
 
The Missouri Alliance for Arts Education promotes Arts Integration as an important method for instruction.  MAAE has adopted the following definition for Arts Integration in Missouri.  
 

Arts Integration (Revised by MAAE BoD 1/16/16)

Arts integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through one or more art forms. Key partners in the delivery system for arts integration include the coordinated involvement of certified arts educators, certified non-arts educators, and professional and/or teaching artists, supported by school administrators. Students engage in a creative process which connects art forms and other subject areas and meets evolving objectives in both.
