Workshops will feature Arts for Learning CT Teaching Artists. The workshops are aimed at academic teachers looking for ways to incorporate the arts into their everyday academic lessons and units. Learn from the best, and network with other passionate educators and arts partners from across the state!

This year, we will have tables for sponsors who wish to advertise, and we are looking for sponsorships that will help make this year bigger, and better than last year! See form below.


Arts for Learning CT would like to extend our most sincere thank you to all the teachers who attended this year's Cultivating Creativity Conference! The day was a huge success, and the attendees were engaged and thoughtful.

Thanks to the attendees and our teaching artists for their hard work:

Sally Rogers, Sanna Stanley, Gerald Moore, Craig Norton, Motoko, Susan Striker,
Khaiim the RapOet, Tiare Bourget of Kahana Hula,
Theresa Mackiweicz and Carol Glynn

The Cultivating Creativity Conference is aimed at equipping teachers in an academic setting with skills and strategies for integrating the arts into daily academic curriculum. Many studies show that the integration of arts into the daily lives of students helps with academic engagement, improved Social-Emotional intelligence, and even higher test scores. You don’t have to be an artist to cultivate creativity! 

Attendees represented a diverse array of schools and organizations including:

Deans Mill School, North Windham School, Lincoln School CSDNB, Jefferson Elementary School, Conte West Hills Magnet School, , Immaculatta Catholic School, Amistad Academy, Hartford Performs , CAHMMS, WIMS, TEAM Inc. - Slocum, PPI, CT Storytelling Ctr., Office of CT Humanities, Prosser Public Library, Professional Music Therapist/Teacher, ACES Mill Academy, Breakthrough Magnet School, RJ O'Brien Academy, Quinnipiac University, The Bushnell, Catskill Mountain Music Together, & Wilbur Cross High School
