What We Do

The Arts Education Collaborative works to serve schools and students through:

• Regional arts education inventories assessing current student access to quality arts education

• Networking opportunities to connect area teachers to arts organizations and teaching artists

• Professional development in arts education for area teachers, arts organizations and artists

• Arts Integration Residencies that partner trained teaching artists with classroom teachers to use the arts to better engage students and achieve benchmarks in math, science, language arts and other core curricular areas.

Current Program Includes:

Professional Development

The NAAEC provides professional development opportunities for classroom teachers, teaching artists, arts organizations, and classroom arts specialists. These sessions offer information about arts integration, help in planning cross-curricular lessons to enhance and deepen student learning, and instruction in creative learning strategies.
