Professional Development Opportunity:            

Young Audiences of Louisiana Teaching Artist Institute

New Orleans, August 24-25

This summer, Young Audiences of Louisiana (YALA) will hold an institute and residency program, cultivating the next generation of highly-qualified teaching artists to support arts-integrated education in local elementary schools. After successfully completing an intensive two-day seminar conducted by arts integration and child development experts, each teaching artist will be placed in a classroom to conduct a five-day residency. Open to professional artists of all teaching experience levels, participants will learn strategies to employ their artistic talents in the instruction of core academic content alongside classroom teachers.

● August 24th and 25th from 9:00am-4:00pm
● Healing Center: 2372 St Claude Ave, New Orleans, LA 70117
