Artful Thinking Across Content Areas

Artful Thinking is a program developed by Harvard University’s Project Zero designed to create a model approach for integrating the arts into regular classroom instruction.
The purpose of Artful Thinking is to help all subject-area teachers regularly use works of visual art and music in their curriculum in ways that strengthen student thinking, learning and expression.
