THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ATTENDED THIS YEAR'S CCC!
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.

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!
