The Connected Learning scholarly community has looked through a variety of lenses to understand how people learn in networks. There is much more to understand about how networks develop, how to sustain them, and further, how we can leverage these networks for teaching and learning. Modes of arts integration offer a useful scaffold for expanding networks of social capital for teaching and learning (Yoon and Baker-Doyle; 2018). In this symposium, authors will present four separate case studies which showcase different ways to capitalize on existing resources for arts integration, and thereby awaken learners to the rich network of resources, institutions, and tools for creative learning. In addition to showcasing a range of modes for networked teaching and learning through the arts, these case studies show work taking place in a variety of settings, including an informal, community-based youth program for video production, a partnership between formal teachers and teaching artists, and a teacher professional development community that takes place in a children’s museum makerspace. Together, these case studies tell the story of how arts-integration represents an important foundation and source of expertise for the development of networks for creative learning.
