About this Event

Keynote address by Lynn Tuttle, Director of Public Policy, Research, and Professional Development at National Association for Music Education

Who will benefit from this conference? Educators, student support staff, community leaders and legislators from across Kansas are invited to take part in this inspiring event. Administrators and non-arts related teachers are encouraged to attend as school teams if possible. Graduate credit and professional development points will be available.

What will I learn? How arts integration works to strengthen social, emotional and character development for early childhood to high school students. Arts integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Participants will work with national experts on classroom management, teacher self-care, and enriched educational strategies. Desired outcomes for attendees:

  • AWARE of the value of arts integration
  • INSPIRED to make arts integration a reality in their community and school
  • CONNECTED with each other and aware of the local resources available
  • EQUIPPED with strategies, tools, and resources

What is Arts Partners? The Just Add Arts Symposium is presented by Arts Partners. Arts Partners inspires creativity and applied learning by integrating the arts as an essential component of a quality PreK to high school education. We bring the arts in education to about 25,000 students annually in partnership with school districts, cultural organizations and teaching artists. Arts Partners is an affiliate of Young Audiences Arts for Learning and Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, and serves the Kansas early childhood community as Kansas Wolf Trap.

The Just Add Arts Symposium Lead Sponsor is the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

The symposium is inspired by Creativity Connects: Arts in Early Learning, a project of Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts and Institute for Child Success.

The symposium is made possible through the support of USD259 Wichita Public Schools, Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, the Kansas Alliance for the Arts in Education and the Wichita Art Museum. The Just Add Arts logo was designed by students studying graphic design from Maize High School.
