The Bascom and The Southeast Center for Arts Integration: SECAI inspires teachers to embrace the arts as the powerful teaching tools they are by engaging them in experiential, arts-integrated learning that all teachers can use.

The Bascom and The Southeast Center for Arts Integration (SECAI) are working together for the first time in 2020 to motivate educators in Western North Carolina to use the arts in the classroom by demonstrating connections between brain research, multiple intelligences theory, and state standards. SECAI inspires teachers to embrace the arts as the powerful teaching tools they are by engaging them in arts-integrated learning that all teachers can use in the classroom. We enable them to teach with the arts immediately by providing practical tools and demonstrating arts-integrated lessons.
