We immerse artists in specialized studio practice, introduce innovative teaching approaches and classroom art projects, and cultivate the rich connections young people can build across the arts, across other disciplines and across the lifespan. Successful program completion prepares artists to become creative art teachers and leads to eligibility for New York State teaching certification.
