“Arts integration is a powerful tool for student learning, and we’re committed to providing teachers with the resources they need to integrate the arts into the Common Core curriculum,” said Elizabeth Escamilla, Getty's acting assistant director for education, in a written statement. 

Students and teachers from the Los Angeles Unified School District and Hawthorne School District are featured in the videos, which offer tips on melding the arts with language arts and other topics.
