Upcoming Live Webinars

Connecting With English Language Learners in the Visual Arts Classroom
[February 2, 2022 | 7pm ET] In second language acquisition, the integration of visual arts provides differentiated learning, bolsters confidence, and encourages students to appreciate their own cultures and heritages through experiential learning in a brave space. Discover how storytelling through individual journeys can help to empower English Language Learner (ELL) students and help them connect to personal identity.
Community-Based Art Education: Making, Teaching, and Research With/in Community Settings
[March 16, 2022 | 7pm ET] Community-based art education (CBAE) projects can teach art skills, connect diverse groups around common themes, beautify spaces, heal unsettled communities, raise awareness of concerns of the disenfranchised, and celebrate community assets and cultures through a culturally responsive process. Join us for an introduction to a CBAE framework to connect educational institutions with their local communities while building sustainable partnerships through arts-based learning. Learn about conceptual, theoretical, practical, and research structures used to aid educators in developing, implementing, and assessing your own CBAE project.
