Creative Classrooms is a NYSED certified professional development program teaching the foundations of social-emotional learning, overcoming limiting expectations, gender socialization, and authentic learning. Through hands-on experience with a variety of creativity activities and reflection tools, we train teachers how to incorporate creativity into their existing curricula.
We offer Creative Classrooms to art teachers, classroom teachers, and creativity specialists:
Art Teacher Training: Designed for art teachers and teaching artists this course provides hands-on workshops with a community of art teachers to deepen their practices of creativity education and develop social-emotional education competence.
Classroom Teacher Training: Geared toward classroom teachers this course offers practical training in incorporating creativity and social-emotional learning into teachers’ existing curricula. Our approach improves not only academic performance but also the overall culture of the classroom.
Creativity Specialist Training: Offered to any member of the school community this course trains a point person for bringing SEL-focused creativity education into individual schools, clusters, and districts.
