There are exciting changes with LBC’s Professional Development: Arts Integration Tools for Teachers program. First, we are expanding! This year, we are offering five workshops all held at Sonoma County Office of Education during the school day.
Each workshop includes the opportunity for classroom modeling, where the instructor demonstrates the strategy directly with students in a classroom. We provide this opportunity to as many teachers as possible based on participation from a school site, a school’s need, and availability. We encourage multiple teachers from a school site to participate in workshops together to support one another as they implement new ideas into their lesson plans. Plus, this will help us schedule classroom modeling.
Several networking opportunities are available before selected public shows for teachers participating in arts integration workshops. These gatherings provide a platform to discuss highlights and challenges with other teachers who are integrating the arts into lesson plans. As thanks for participating, we will give teachers a free pair of tickets to stay and see the show!
We are excited about our expanded program so we can be of greater service to educators and students. We look forward to seeing you at Sonoma County Office of Education!

A West Coast Home for Kennedy Center Workshops
Bright eyed and engaged students, that’s the goal of every good teacher. At Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, local educators discover how to make learning more dynamic, in-depth, and fun!
Each year, the Arts Center presents a series of professional development workshops in conjunction with the esteemed Kennedy Center for the Arts Partners in Education program. The workshops, which feature the nation’s finest teaching-artists, help local educators learn new ways to integrate the arts into their classrooms. Recent programs featured techniques to help students improve their writing by creating dialogue through drama, offered art as a means for exploring and understanding prejudice, and explored drama strategies for motivating students who are learning English as a second language.
The Center’s Professional Development program also offers classroom modeling where the instructor attends a school to demonstrate the strategy directly with students in a classroom. We are excited to be able to provide this opportunity to as many teachers as possible based on the number of teachers attending the workshop from a school site, the school’s need, and scheduling and availability.
Each professional development session includes targeted lesson plans that meet Common Core Standards.
