Artful Learning in Action
Arts are a part of Who we are at Hillside
Experience. Inquire. Create. Reflect. Hillside students are immersed in these learning experiences each day as part of the Artful Learning Model that is so much a part of what makes Hillside–Hillside. It encourages students to think in big ways, to question and take risks as they use the arts to better understand what they are learning. Artful Learning is based in the common core standards of what students need to know, understand and do; it engages students in learning that is integrated with the arts and our classrooms are alive with movement, theater, and artistic expression. Take a look inside our classrooms and discover what students are learning through this challenging arts-based approach to learning.
