Arts for Learning Connecticut is pleased to announce the new Arts Partners Schools Initiative utilizing the 21st Century Learning skills of creativity, collaboration, communication, increasing arts education AND arts integration. Arts Partners is designed to foster lasting partnerships with schools interested in using an arts integration approach for teaching and learning.
Schools that become part of this program will be provided with the following services:
One five day teaching artist residency
Two, half days of teacher professional development
One all school assembly (could be with the teaching artist or any other artist from our roster)
Guaranteed registrations for 5 teachers at a 3 day summer arts integration institute

Bring a community of artists to your school who can provide both strong arts education and work with teachers to integrate the arts into their curriculum. This approach also speaks to the Common Core Curriculum Standards in both Literacy and Math. Please call our Education Director, Mike Kachuba, at 203-230-8101 to find out how your school can become an Arts Partners School.
