For Immediate Release: Center offering free workshops to help teachers incorporate the arts into their classrooms

Escondido, California — :

Local teachers are invited to attend two FREE workshops that will explore how to incorporate the Theatrical and Visual Arts into their elementary or middle school classrooms.

The California Center for the Arts, Escondido’s (the Center) Education department will be hosting the workshops from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Mon., Jan. 13. The workshops will run about 50 minutes in length and will repeat so that educators have the opportunity to attend both subjects if desired.

Enhancing Your Classroom with Drama and Enhancing Your Classroom with Digital Photography will each run from 4:30-5:20pm and then repeat at 5:30-6:20pm.

The lessons and strategies discussed connect to and support Common Core standards. Led by the Center’s Teaching Artists, the workshops are not about teaching the arts but rather using the arts to teach and reinforce other subject matter in the curriculum.

Space is limited and reservations are required. To sign up, teachers should contact Education Manager Rebecca Noland at (760) 839-4179 or email
