Teachers connect with cultural organization
The Palm Beach County Cultural Council is producing the third edition of the Teacher’s Guide to Art and Culture in Palm Beach County. The guide for all K-12 teachers contains vital information about art education programs at 57 non-profit cultural organizations. Including details such as: grade levels served, contact information, cost and details, 200809 programs that meet Sunshine State Standards, and organizations with school-district approved free busing.
To meet demand for the guide, the council increased production for the third consecutive year. Ten thousand copies of this years guide will be printed and distributed to the School District of Palm Beach County, charter schools, private schools, after-school programs, youth empowerment centers and home-schoolers. The guide will also be available for download on the Council’s website.
More than 1,000 teachers will receive the guide at the “Learning Through the Arts” workshop, which was held at the Kravis Center for Performing Arts on August 12 and 13. Joining visual and performing art teachers were approximately 600 language arts teachers who attended the workshop for the first time. Their attendance helped expand art education integration beyond the visual and performing art disciplines.
The 34 non-profit cultural organizations that will showcase their education programs at the workshop are:
Ann Norton Sculpture Garden, Maltz Jupiter Theatre, Armory Art Center, Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, Art Deco Society, Norton Museum of Art, Boca Raton Museum of Art, Old School Square, Boca Raton Philharmonic Symphonia, Palm Beach County Cultural Council, Centre for the Arts, Palm Beach Opera, Delray Beach Playhouse / Locomotion Theatre, Palm Beach Pops, Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center, Preservation Foundation, Duncan Theater, Race for the Arts, Eg2, Resource Depot, Flagler Museum, Schoolhouse Children’s Museum, Florida Atlantic University Galleries, Society of the Four Arts, Florida Stage, Spady Museum, Historical Society of Palm Beach County, VSA arts, Kravis Center, Yesteryear Village, Lake Worth Playhouse, Young Singers of the Palm Beaches, Lighthouse Center for the Arts and Youth Orchestra of Palm Beach County.
