Teacher Professional Learning for PreK - 5th Grade Educators

August 15-19 at Dumas Bay Centre in Federal Way


The Creative Impact Summer Institute & Classroom Mentorship offers hands-on, classroom-ready lessons with professional artists in dance, theatre & media arts, and visual arts. Art supplies are provided for all participants and their classrooms, clock hours are available, and Arts Impact offers partial and full financial subsidies. Artist Mentors partner with teachers throughout the school year for one-on-one mentorships. Arts infused curricula bring culturally grounded arts experiences together with core academic concepts that support social emotional learning and close achievement gaps.

"My eyes have been opened. I am experiencing how arts-based learning can develop & support student growth across content areas. I’m rewriting my first week of plans to integrate these lessons into creating a classroom culture,”- Eileen Fagan, 2nd grade, Sheridan, Virtual Institute 2021
