Arts Integration Education Symposiums

Print this page

KCAIC announces two professional development opportunities in arts integration this summer for Kansas K-12 Teachers.

Arts integration engages diverse learners through music, dance, poetry, visual art, and drama to understand and express their learning of curriculum concepts through the arts. Now arts integration isn’t just for the art teacher; these strategies can be incorporated by all educators from early childhood to 12th grade as well as school support staff. Educators at all Kansas schools are encouraged to attend one or both as curriculum will differ.
