"As our world and the interactions of people from all countries converge it is increasingly important to understand our neighbors. Learning about various cultures' artistic expressions is a wonderful step toward international understanding" Arts and Activitites

She also teaches vocabulary and historical references in the beginning of each lesson. This video is recommended for younger-level students through middle school." School Arts
