The article discusses what educators can learn from the arts and presents eight ideas embedded in artistic practice that are relevant to improving education. The author believes that the improvement of education is made possible through methods that have a background in the arts. One of the eight ideas is that education can learn from art that form and content are inseparable. Another idea is that education can learn from the arts that everything interacts. The author also believes that somatic experience is one of the most important indicators that someone has gotten it right.
