“This institute has taught me that “art” – movement, creating something, songs – should be in our classrooms everyday. Integrating the concepts in the Standards will stick in our students’ heads better and invoke higher level thinking when they are participating in arts based activities.” (Participant, Sitka 2015)

This summer Alaska Arts Education Consortium is planning to hold 5 separate Arts Institutes for teachers, paras, administrators and other interested educators. The focus of each varies according to the theme, the length, and the host community. Compete information to be posted soon. Read more for details and online registration.
