Connecting the Arts to Social Emotional Learning

TUSD’s Opening Minds through the Arts (OMA) program and the Arizona Department of Education designed a series of videos demonstrating how the Arts and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) are integrated to inspire creativity, collaboration, teamwork, and self-expression.

These video resources provide a framework to help teachers activate artistic literacy within safe & healthy learning environments. We invite you to share these links with other educators and adapt the lessons to the needs of your students! For more information on the series, please email Joan Ashcraft.

The OMA program continues to explore connections between SEL and the fine and performing arts.

Tucson Unified experiences the positive impact of these connections and promotes art education for learning loss and student enrichment.
