The Arts Express Summer Conference for Elementary Educators is for teachers, arts educators, administrators, and parent volunteers. The conference provides instruction to integrate dance, drama, literary arts, media arts, music, and visual arts across the curriculum to improve student learning. The conference offers internationally known keynote speakers and presenters, as well as local experts. It provides experiences for educators to rejuvenate themselves personally and professionally. Hands-on experiential workshops are a signature element of the conference. Presenters include researchers, practitioners, and teaching artists who provide academic rigor and artistic excellence.

Theme: Circles All Around Us

We invite presenters to propose sessions focused on supporting collective and individual well-being through the arts. You can propose an 85-minute or 3-hour deep-dive session. We seek the highest quality, hands-on, experiential workshops that are aesthetically curated to transform the whole teacher. We will prioritize sessions that focus on hands-on, engaged learning. We are looking for sessions that begin with action and teach through experience. Clearly state what participants will actively do during your workshop.
