Making smART Connections: Artist / Educator Collaborations


The New York State Alliance for Arts Education, in conjunction with the Adirondack Arts in Education Partnership and Champlain Valley Educational Services is proud to present a day-long Arts-in-Education (AIE) conference.

This conference is designed for all educators: general classroom teachers, sequential arts & music teachers, school administrators, teaching artists, cultural organization education coordinators, school librarians, and interested parents.

Participants will gain insight and strategies on bringing the arts into the classroom and infusing and enriching the curriculum in all subject areas through the arts. Those new to AIE will discover where to begin the journey, and where to turn for resources. Veterans will gain new techniques for the planning, execution and evaluation of AIE programs. Our goal is for everyone to come away with a renewed passion for ensuring that the arts are an integral part of every student’s education.

This is the conference for YOU:
• the classroom teacher looking for ideas and new tools to use in the classroom, to engage your students and renew your enthusiasm for teaching
• the school administrator interested in achievement and learning for all students
• the special area teacher craving a definitive place for arts in the school environment
• the artist, using knowledge, creativity and specialized skills to inspire learning
(and to earn money!)
• the cultural organization administrator who desires a lasting community and school connection through sharing of knowledge and resources
• the visionary who identifies collaboration, cross-curricular learning and the arts as vital 21st century skills in today’s global community
