Integrated Arts

Made Easy

All ArtsAround programs provide integrated, teacher friendly lessons, weaving cross-curricular subject areas into life, with fun, engaging topics. A strong sense of social justice along with life issues are featured in ArtsAround programs where students begin to understand and value their own self-worth, to respect differences and honour the importance of human rights, guiding them to become responsible citizens.
ArtsAround programs encourage youth to experience active learning and develop a sense of community while searching for meaning in the way the world works. They will begin to appreciate the beauty through the ‘arts around’ them. They will cultivate better attitudes, create a culturally rich, positive school community and celebrate their accomplishments together.

ArsAround The World

ArtsAround the World: (ATW) Primary grades (Grades 1, 2 & 3) together discover the world while taking an imaginary trip with an experienced Tour Guide (Teacher-in-role). All Primary grades visit the same country each month so they can share songs, playground games, stories, dramatizations and dances, even speaking a few sentences to each other in the language of each country. Carefully selected short YouTube videos (media literacy) enhance the quick, active pace in every ATW lesson. 


Multi-cultural activities abound through 6-7 countries each year for three years. When they leave primary, your students will have visited over 18 countries.



This program is for Grades 4-8 students with emphasis in Drama, Music, Dance and Literacies: Media, Social, Emotional, Physical and Cultural.


ArtsAround deals with real life issues and challenges, adventures and conflicts: all in a joyous, active way. Everything is digitally ready for any teacher. No planning required except a bit of prep. This is integration into the curriculum intergration at its best! Due to so many split grades, this is a two year program with new exciting lessons each year (optional).

Important Contributors to ArtsAround's success include:


HWCDSB provided the testing ground for the inception of ArtsAround in 2006 in four classrooms. We have continued to grow with the help of funding from the Ontario Ministry of Education in both School Boards. With the help of Senior Admin support, Arts Integration Teachers (AITs) were created in 2011. EVERY student in K-8 in HWCDSB is involved in ArtsAround programming! Watch what Teachers have to say...
