Professional Development for Teachers

ArtReach also offers professional development workshops for teachers. These are opportunities for teachers to learn about Gallery works and art processes and to engage in art-making as a way to create dynamic and vibrant classrooms. An emphasis is placed on the all-important aspect of advocacy for the arts as a necessary core in our school curriculum. For workshop information, contact Kris Webster.

Learning through the Arts, visit ArtsSmarts Nova Scotia for more information.
