We began a partnership during the 2016-17 school year with the Right Brain Initiative to integrate art across the curriculum. We have enjoyed artists using dance movement and observational drawing to deepen conceptual understanding in all content areas. RBI also provides ongoing professional development for our team to expand our toolbox for arts in the classroom.
The Right Brain Initiative is an arts education partnership of the Regional Arts & Culture Council. They are on the way to making the arts a part of every child’s classroom throughout the Portland metro area, based in the belief that all public K-8 students deserve high quality arts education, regardless of neighborhood, language, or readiness to learn.
