There are many schools in the U.S. started to use art-integration multimodal approach in school curriculum on different academic subjects. This research focuses on the art-integrated pedagogy in linguistic language, especially for English language learners and Chinese language learners. The researcher approaches the subject with illustrating a collection of personal cases about art-integrated pedagogy used in teaching and learning environment. This art-based research produces two teaching materials designed to answer the questions that were frequently asked in the researcher’s teaching and learning experiences, and they are the products of the process of finding the solutions. This research is hope to encourage language teachers to design their own art-integrated teaching materials.
