education > arts-in-education workshops

SAMA conducts Arts-in-Education workshops at the various SAMA facilities throughout the year. The workshops are designed as professional development tools for artists, teachers, and school administrators, and are also open to the general public. The interdisciplinary workshops address the importance of art in education while integrating the arts with other academic content. Academic standards, assessment, residency planning and advocacy, curriculum integration, and teacher/artist interaction are discussed in educational forums. Educators can typically receive six hours of ACT 48 credit with participation.
