About the event

What can a DeltaARTS teaching artist residency do for teachers and students?

Teachers often say, "I don’t have time for anything extra”, yet, a teaching artist can help you by designing a residency of three or more visits that will heighten students’ grasp of a subject by challenging them to think outside of the box.

Teaching Artists create the teachable moments for you and your students by engaging you and your students using arts integration focused on your needs.

This workshop will be very hands on with minimal power points, mostly activities, but lots of breaks. This is not a lecture we want to encourage fun and creativity and learning through action.

The morning session, 9:00am to noon, is open to all grade levels and stakeholders to identify what a Teaching Artist is and what they do.

Lunch will be provided from noon to 1:00 pm

The afternoon session, 1:00pm to 4:00pm, is geared to Pre-K to Grade One and focuses on the Wolf Trap Early Learning Through the Arts program.

Participants will do the following:

  • Learn what a Wolf Trap Residency is; 
  • Explore how a teaching artist can design the residency for your classroom; and 
  • Participate in make and take activities for you to take back to your students.
