The article looks at suggestions for ways to help artistically gifted students succeed academically. It is important for teachers to find teaching and learning strategies which promote the academic achievement of students whose learning style preferences are visual, kinesthetic, or spacial. Multiple intelligence theory is referenced, noting the challenge of teaching to intelligence in more than one domain. The author considers the causes of academic underachievement among students who are artistically gifted.
