Learn more about our teaching artist residencies and opportunities for professional development for teachers.
Teaching Artist Residencies provide 9-26 weeks of instruction by a professional teaching artist in the discipline of dance, theatre, music, or visual art. The artist teaches their discipline collaboratively with the school’s teachers and administrators to integrate the arts into the core academic subjects. The program aligns with the Louisiana Student Standards and the National Core Arts Standards, and is available to students in grades pre-kindergarten through high school.
This program is designed to provide classroom teachers, arts teachers, and teaching artists professional learning opportunities that enhance their understanding of the arts and provides effective techniques that reinforce core curriculum. Teachers will leave the professional development sessions with the tools they need to plan, develop, and implement arts integrated strategies and activities into their classrooms. This is our tenth year as a partner with the John F. Kennedy Center’s Partners in Education program in partnership with the East Baton Rouge Parish School System.
The Arts Council offers several field trip opportunities throughout the school year for students to participate in arts and cultural activities.
Check back in August for specific dates.
