Why ArtsC is Special?

The program consists of constant correlation and can be used with most curricula. Often core and arts subjects are taught separately. Even when the subjects are correlated, this process is not a routine in most classrooms. With the ArtsC program, every core subject lesson consists of correlation of arts subjects.
