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. 
 
The FAM Education Cohort Workshops are free weekly professional development opportunities in which educators can experiment, collaborate, and explore together in a rich arts-learning environment.  Content and meeting times vary.  Please view the FAM Arts in Education Cohort Schedule for more details.  These workshops are free and open to all educators, unless otherwise noted.  Pre-registration may be required for specific workshops.  Contact Hour Certificates will be provided for participation.
