The document presents the final report of the Arts in Education Project, a research project of the National Committee, Arts for the Handicapped to develop and measure the effects of an arts infused curriculum on the academic performance of handicapped elementary school children. A model for infusing the arts into the established curriculum was created, along with a guide to provide educators with arts strategies for teaching basic learning skills and promoting aesthetic development. The arts infused curriculum model utilizes all the arts (visual arts, drama/theater, dance/movement, and music) in an interrelated way to teach basic learning skills (gross motor development, sensory motor integration, perceptual motor integration, language development, conceptual skills development, and social skills development) and aesthetic development (awareness, imitation, self initiation, skill development, and critical judgment). In the 3 years of the project, a large volume of data has been accumulated, with test results suggesting the success of the program. The final report covers project rationale, goals and objectives, organization, activities and accomplishments, research and evaluation results, and conclusions and recommendations. Sample instruments and forms, research and evaluation data, and publications are appended. (DLS)
