THROUGHLINES LLC designs and delivers arts based learning programs to address education, leadership, and community based collaborations. The partners of this organization, Alison Marshall PhD, Susan Thompson MAIS, and Patrick Elkins-Zeglarski MFA, have over10 years of experience together developing arts based learning programs that focus on inquiry as a process to impact teaching and learning, activate thinking, and inform planning, evaluation, and collaborative practices. In school settings our work addresses arts integration in the full curriculum with a focus on language acquisition and literacy skills, collaborative learning, creative problem solving and multi-sensory learning approaches. Our arts-based learning approach also engages participants in researching and identifying organization and/or community needs as well as social justice issues that can become the focus of classroom or community arts projects and performances. The team is currently working on a book detailing the THROUGHLINES approach.
