Creativity Kit and Workshop Information

Workshops are available to inspire K-8th grade educators to teach through the arts and to recognize the cognitive and social powers the arts have on learning. Hands on, fast past, and individualized for the needs of the group, are of high priority to the presenter. You will take away lessons that can be used in your classroom the following day, an understanding of why the arts are crucial in learning, and access to resources that will allow you to continue to use the arts and further your own understanding of arts integration.
