The Arts and Humanities website is designed to offer resources to teachers in the fields of art, theatre, dance, music, and world languages. The website posts current information regarding the annual statewide elementary professional training in arts integration, ArtsPowered Schools, including a link to the institute's website. The website includes information covering new projects, such as the Visual Art Gallery, where art teachers may post their students' art works online in an electronic art exhibit. The newest addition to the website is the graphic organizer, Arts and Humanities: A Crosswalk Across the Curriculum, which highlights several current methods of using the arts as a tool to promote academic success in the Common Core subjects. The arts provide both vibrant content area with significant 21st century skills and also a means to promote progress in all academic areas of study. The Crosswalk offers a graphic snapshot of how the arts connect to a well-rounded education for all Idaho students.
