Arts in Education Professional Development Program
FAM Education Cohort
 
The Arts in Education Professional Development Program at the Farnsworth Art Museum is designed to connect classroom teachers, specialty teachers (i.e. art, music, technology, etc.), professional artists, docents, and museum educators to develop and co-facilitate multi-learning experiences that engage student learners in experiential art-making activities that connect to classroom curricular standards.  This inquiry-based, visual learning approach enhances student learning by integrating the arts into the classroom.
