"I really appreciate not just the techniques you taught, but the meta-cognition that you shared with us as you taught us, and the manageability of the work. It was so, so, so fun and easy. What brilliant work you do!"
—Susan Stewart, 3-4 grade teacher, Williston Central School

This annual full-day conference highlighting best practices in arts integration reveals the transformative power of weaving the arts into a core curriculum. At this year’s conference—now in its eighth year—we clarify the essentials of arts integration and how inquiry can be used as a framework for cross-curricular projects. This day offers Vermont educators an exciting opportunity to work closely with teacher leaders and guest artist Paige Hernandez in arts integration. In her work, Baltimore-native Hernandez blends dance, monologue, and poetry over the backdrop of hip-hop and R&B classics. Educators, teaching artists, and arts leaders work together to understand the nature of inquiry in their most exciting work. We tap the processes that lead to great questions and innovative answers and illuminate how partnering across content areas strengthens the skills and motivation for problem solving. Throughout the conference, we investigate the core reasons arts integration works and why it is producing such remarkable results in student learning and activating classroom environments. Educators leave with a collection of arts-integrated lesson plans they can model for their colleagues and classrooms.

Since 2004, the Flynn Center has partnered with the Champlain Valley Educator Development Center to offer professional development workshops in the performing arts for teachers in Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle, and now Addison counties. Open to all teachers, regardless of school location, these workshops are led by visiting artists performing at the Flynn, teaching artists on the Kennedy Center roster, and Flynn Center teaching artists. They are held in either local schools or at the Flynn Center--either in its studios, the gallery, FlynnSpace or on the Main Stage. A letter certifying attendance and outlining areas of applicability is provided to each workshop participant.
