Professional Learning for Educators Workshops

Any Given Child Madison is building capacity in our community to provide more arts education opportunities for our students with professional learning workshops for educators and teaching artists.

Experts in arts-integration strategies provide educators with tools and support to transform their classrooms. Through free interactive workshops and demonstration teaching, educators discover new ways to reach students with diverse learning styles. Certificates for each workshop will be awarded and each are eligible for PAC credit (for MMSD teachers).
