We are partnering with educators to ignite a new movement to bring authenticity-based social-emotional learning to school communities across the country. Our programs focus on the role of authenticity and creativity in children's lives and development as learners. We have recently been featured at SXSW EDU, The National School Board Association Conference, and the New York State Art Educators Conference.
In addition to our per-existing offerings, we work with organizations to create customized programs that meet the needs of their classroom, school, or district. To discuss how to bring Guild programs to your community, please contact Mark LaRiviere at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Authenticity in the Classroom: Addressing student stress through an authenticity-focused social-emotional learning approach
This unique professional development program helps educators bring authenticity-focused social emotional learning (SEL) into their classrooms, schools, and communities.
Designed as year-long professional development for art teachers and creativity specialists, these programs train educators in the foundations of SEL and creativity-based authentic learning. We work with educators to incorporate creativity into their existing curricula and build a community.
