This literature review provides a look into some of the available scholarly literature on the benefits of arts education in second language acquisition and in pedagogy. It considers various aspects, concepts and implementations of arts education and the academic benefits that result. This paper also includes my own efforts as an educator in using arts education in my lesson planning and the outcomes within my classroom from my Spanish students and how they coincide with the scholarly literature.
