Qualitative approaches in evaluation continue to expand, and this article focuses on the potential for the Arts to contribute to innovation in evaluation.  Arts-informed inquiry is an approach that works within, augments, and extends  traditional forms of qualitative approaches. This study documents an educational  program evaluation that intentionally plans for, uses, and reflects upon arts-informed inquiry. Three considerations found central to arts-informed inquiry are  presented: (a) working with layers of context, (b) enhancing access and engagement,  and (c) supporting differentiated communication. Arts-informed inquiry emerged as  a purposeful methodology that enhances the processes and forms of representation  within the field of evaluation.
