Professional Development for Teachers

  • Work with your arts specialists to present a workshop or series of workshops for classroom teachers to learn arts-based skills they can use in their classrooms; for example, drawing and painting techniques, theatre exercises, or skills in listening to and interpreting music.
  • See what resources for acquiring arts-based teaching skills are offered by museums, theatre and dance groups, and orchestras in your area. If no such training exists, ask a local group to help you develop one.
  • As a mixed group of specialists and classroom teachers, visit a museum, concert, or play. Afterward, discuss the experience from your various perspectives.
