Join us this summer, June 10-12, for a dynamic professional development institute focused on performing arts integration in the classroom. Educators will spend three days at the East Bay Center for Performing Arts working directly with professional artists to learn new skills and ideas for incorporating music, dance and theater into their curricula while addressing Common Core state standards. They will also discover new media-rich resources KQED and PBS, including a new arts video series made specifically for a student audience. Teachers can also earn a $200 stipend or two continuing education units from CSU East Bay for completion of the institute and follow-up assignments.

Artists and educators Kwesi Anku and Kweku Morgan were recently featured on KQED’s new arts education video series, and they will be leading a full day of the institute. Check out their interview and then sign up for the institute by visiting
