What is Arts Integration?

GRFA's mission is about successfully motivating and engaging students through an arts-infused and arts-integrated curriculum. Arts integration means teaching every subject by using the visual and performing arts to enhance the learning process.  Subjects are connected, rather than separated.  This teaching method caters to the way all students learn, engaging each child and giving them a path to success.  When students are engaged and enjoying themselves, learning comes naturally and discipline problems are minimized.  Educators are happy because what they are doing is actually working - their students are learning and excited to be at school.

Parents, educators, and administrators are amazed at the connections students make through the art that improve their capacity to learn - thus helping them to believe in themselves.

Student Success
"GRFA art contest has allowed my artwork to leave the classroom and be discovered by many people who appreciate art and the wonderful state of Louisiana. It's been a prestigious experience and honor to be awarded and recognized by the professional art community."
