The study revealed that while integration in theory can offer an antidote for fragmentation of the school curriculum, in practice it is difficult to execute in a way that is meaningful to children and makes sense from their perspective. Findings seem to indicate the need for rethinking the manner in which arts integration residencies are conducted. Assisting artists and teachers in bridging their worlds as well as crossing discipline boundaries may improve educational practices within these programs and with them learning opportunities in and through the arts for children.
