Arts Instruction

Individual offerings in each art form introduce the philosophy and practice of comprehensive arts education. Teachers deepen their understanding of arts elements, structures, and strategies; engage in the artistic processes of creating, performing, and responding; and examine developmentally appropriate practice.




Visual Art


Arts Integration

These workshops focus on the philosophy and practice of concept-based arts integration. Teachers learn in, about, and through the arts as they identify key principles of arts integration, examine authentic connections among the arts and other subjects, and engage in lessons that model effective practice.


Curriculum Design

Teachers become acquainted with national and state curriculum standards, explore the backward design process, analyze the instructional design of model arts integrated lessons, and begin developing their own lessons that connect the arts with their existing curriculum.


In addition to these popular workshops, Arts-Based Collaborative can design individually tailored workshops to meet the specific needs of your school program.

Contact Arts-Based Collaborative director Kim Wheetley to discuss and schedule workshops.
