Why integrate the arts?
How do we transform teaching practice to ensure all children are given the best circumstances for learning? Arts for Learning Connecticut works in partnership with schools to address this question through Professional Development in arts integration.
Arts for Learning Connecticut offers professional development workshops in arts integration are designed to increase teachers’ comfort level in teaching both in and through the arts, while tapping into their own creative impulses. By focusing on important areas that support a teacher’s effectiveness in the classroom, our PD programs provide the basis for reaching all learners and improving student achievement in the arts and other academic subjects.
We offer two types of PD: workshops just for educators and/or PD embedded into an artist residency where teachers work along side the artists in the classroom. PD programs can be tailored to your school’s needs and budget.
