Professional Development


Our highly-regarded Professional Development programs offer skill-building workshops that are playful and informative, enhancing teachers’ professional skills to meet curriculum outcomes for grades K-12.

Workshops are designed for all levels of educator experience and guide teachers to create, reflect, explore, and deepen their creativity and understanding of the arts through visual art, drama, dance, music, and multimedia. Programs are taught by professional artists who specialize in arts integration and delivered at your school or at Arts Commons, providing a stimulating arts environment for teachers.

We collaborate with you to create the best arts experience through custom designed programs (half, full and multi-week programs available)

Teachers are invited to come to Arts Commons May 18th for arts infused PD day
