Professional Development for YOUR Staff

The Elephantworks Studio

Move your School Dynamically toward valuing the impact of arts education:

Let me just say, I love teachers. I love teachers that share, wanting to help others get better at their craft and I love teachers that help me be a better teacher. I have not been good at the giving part, the sharing part, but my goal is to get better, waaaaaay better!


We, as teachers, cannot continue to waste time reinventing the wheel over and over--we need to be one big, bold creative, world-wide team of awesomeness that shares our knowledge, our failures and our creative hopes for the future!

Not every young person will go on to be an artist. But they will all be better students, employees, and citizens if they indeed have opportunities to embrace their creativity."
                     Robert L. Lynch, President and CEO, Americans for the Arts

I have taught all over the world, including India; Arts Integration is a tool that can impact learning in children all over the world--because children all over the world need the benefits of the arts!
