Welcome to the Fine Arts Professional Development site. This site is focused on professional development resources for educators in the areas of fine arts and creativity. Articles, videos, learning modules, and links continue to be updated. Facilitator guides, materials, handouts, and session guidelines are available to assist districts, specific school sites, and professional learning communities in facilitating the topics through an arts education lens. Learn more about the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Fine Arts Education resources available through this video.
There are many conferences highlighting arts education throughout the school year. Many of these are identified within the calendar below. Four of note include the Wisconsin Dance Council Conference, Wisconsin State Music Conference, Alliance for Wisconsin Theatre Education, and the Wisconsin Art Education Association. Here is a Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Fine Arts Education letter to share with school administration for their consideration of supporting arts educators attendance to these opportunities.
For additional support, please contact Julie Palkowski, Fine Arts and Creativity Education Consultant. Support is available through phone, email, with Google Hangout, ZOOM, and SKYPE options. There are some opportunities for face to face sessions; however, dates are limited.
