Abstract: The learning sciences face the challenge of conceptualizing how power suffuses educational contexts. By examining how artists and teacher partnerships design and implement arts-integrated curricula in public school classrooms, I take a step toward theorizing how power affects local systems of activity. Through applying lenses from cultural-historical activity theory, I argue arts-integration provides unique opportunities for students to exercise transformative agency as they critically experiment with bringing their broader sociocultural contexts into their classrooms.
