The AcA's Arts in Education program provides tools for educators and arts experiences for studentsand the community throughout the year. The AcA, along with the Louisiana Department of Education, believe that by giving young students the opportunity to learn about the arts and to make connections to language, math, science and social studies through the arts, that we can help them to develop their minds more fully and to experience the world more broadly.
Professional Development Workshops demonstrate practical and proven
techniques for teaching in the arts, teaching about the arts and
teaching through the arts. They expand teachers' understanding of the
visual and performing arts and help to reinforce classroom curricula.
