training for teaching artists & consultations with K-12 Educators
Providing high-quality training for teaching artists is a priority and cornerstone of the All Arts Access vision. While many artists and musicians find themselves thrust into the role of educator, in a variety of situations, most do not have a background in youth development, curriculum development, classroom management, intergroup dialogue, social and emotional learning and community organizing. Taking advantage of the great resources and experts available locally, from knowledge centers like the Allied Media Project, Weikart Center, Eastern Michigan University, and University of Michigan, All Arts Access will plan intensive trainings 2-4 times per year. Trainings in the areas mentioned above will also be open to teaching artists from other Detroit-based organizations, at a low-cost fee.
