In School Arts Integration Workshops

Trained teaching artists visit your classroom to facilitate art or theatre activities that integrate the arts into any subject matter. These workshops can serve as an active introduction to content, a method to solidify learning, or as a tool to deepen understanding. Workshops are directly linked to the Common Core State Standards, Colorado Standards, and 21st Century Learning Skills.
