Abstract: The purpose of this study was to correlate discipline-based art education with visualization and to propose a framework by which this correlation might be used to integrate the art curriculum with the social studies curriculum. The procedure was to research the critical concepts drawn from discipline-based art education and the operative concepts drawn from visualization. The concepts were integrated with the art education curriculum and the social studies curriculum. Components of the curriculum framework integrating art and social studies are: First, identification of the theories which are basic to the framework; associative recall, visualization, mental imagery, and discipline-based art education. Second, identification of the concepts from the art curriculum and the social studies curriculum which are appropriate to both curricula. Third, development of a statement using one or more of the theories and concepts to help teachers organize the subject matter. Finally, choosing content samples from the art and social studies curriculum to provide for application of the framework.
