'DBP offers students of all abilities choices for self-expression. Instead of limiting communication to speaking and writing, DBP allows complex student thought, feelings, and ideas to be represented an infinite number of ways - physically, tactilely, aurally, and visually, to name just a few.'-- Talleri A. McRae, Arts Access, Inclusion and Education Consultant
'DBP is an engaging practice for anyone hoping to spark authentic dialogue with their learning communities. I have used these strategies to teach core content, engage youth in social issues, and create artistic projects.'-- Nitra Gutierrez, Creative Learning Instructional Coach, Austin Independent School District.
