2021 VIRTUAL ARTS INTEGRATION SYMPOSIUM
July 21-23, 2021

The Music Center’s professional development for educators focuses on arts integration strategies for grades PreK-12 teachers in dance, media arts, music, theatre, and visual arts at school sites and at The Music Center. Teachers learn creative and effective approaches to integrate the arts into their content areas. Lessons and experiences are rooted in the California Arts Standards, Common Core, 21st Century Learning Skills and Social Emotional Learning. We seek to expand on current teaching models, including strengthening school learning communities, advancing best practices, and fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and lesson planning.
