Summary The purpose of this master's project is to encourage creativity and achievement through the integration of art into the social studies curriculum. By using art, and the experiences and skills it can develop, educators can promote academic success. This project consists of a series of units that support creativity, critical thinking, and innovation through the visual arts. This interactive project aims to integrate technology to foster student participation and engagement. Furthermore, by encouraging project based learning and supporting all learning styles teachers can allow students to express their knowledge in alternative ways and reach their full academic potential. Each unit of study covers a different period of art and develops analytical skills that relate to the exploration of particular art genre. The first unit provides students with an overview of the afterlife in the ancient Mediterranean World through images and myths. The second unit centers on folk art and students' diverse backgrounds. The last unit concentrates on modern art and its influence on our visual culture. Through the units of study students acquire skills to critique and evaluate artwork, and engage in online research and investigations. The ultimate goal is for students to take these skills and apply them in other curricular areas and learn to enjoy the process of art making. In addition the active participation and classroom interactions of the project also foster a positive classroom environment that encourages creativity and leadership.
