The Arts Integration Collaborative Teaching Institute is a collaborative professional learning model, designed for teams of teachers within the same school to encourage collegial trust, rely on the strengths and expertise of others, and create a job-embedded infrastructure to support a shared goal of providing authentic arts integration as a school wide approach.Back
Arts Bridge is an innovative professional learning model where teachers and sponsored students learn side by side in an immersive studio setting.
Arts Bridge students will earn university credit for a unique course that includes intensive, workshop-style instruction in dance, theatre, music, design and visual art with Winthrop faculty, who are all professional practicing artists and designers, giving students a true college classroom and studio experience.
For Arts Bridge teachers, it is a rare opportunity to receive continuing education credits to explore the value of learning in the arts, experience and develop a studio-mindset to accelerate project-based learning potential in their own classroom; not to mention unlocking their own personal creative confidence. Priority is given to non-arts teachers!
