question on arts in Zen

I am planning a Master's thesis on art in Zen Buddhism and how it is related to/ is used as meditative practice...

I was wondering how I could find out what arts are most closely related to what schools?/lineages?
If I can narrow it down to one or two lineages that would be helpful.

You might check out the Tendai school, which made a lot of room for art among its practices. You'd also be talking about a school that doesn't get much attention in the west.

I should be clearer and say that Tendai is not a school of Zen, per se. It's pre-Zen, and had notable influence on Japanese Zen.
