Arts Every Day is proud to support Baltimore City Public Schools teachers by providing a rich variety of professional development opportunities in arts integration and artistic practices. We host four live in-person or virtual workshops during the school year, as well as a growing library of asynchronous professional development courses on Thinkific, our Learning Management System. Teachers at our Partner Schools are able to earn AUs through their completion of AED professional developments. Further, by participating in our learning experiences, teachers join a community of arts integrationists who bring creativity, artistic thinking, and joyful expression into their classrooms.
