The 2016 COCAedu Summer Institute for Arts Integration will provide educators with strategies for how to use the arts to connect to curricular areas, meet state core learning standards, increase student engagement, deepen student comprehension, and identify alternative assessment opportunities. Workshops are designed to let participants explore quality arts integration and give them the tools and strategies to feel confident using the arts across a variety of content areas.

Scholarships for Des Lee Fine Arts Education Collaborative partners are available.  For further information, contact Dr. Michael Smith at smithmv@umsl.edu.
