The Infusion Cohort Program was an intensive and sustained professional learning program for artists and teachers focused on arts integration in schools.
Taking place from September 2012 to June 2015, six professional artists collaborated with a team of educators in six elementary schools across British Columbia to discover and develop ways to bring arts integration based practices into the classroom. This learning adventure inspired an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form.
Infusion was about infusing art into all that we do at school. I think art will be infused in my life that way. Grade 7 Student
My teaching has grown exponentially. What if we hadn't had the Infusion program? It's changed the way I teach for good! Teacher
I see this as a way more organic way to teach. It’s a marvelous gateway to expanding learning! Teacher
