One of the strongest ways to create Arts Advocacy for your program is by collaborating and working with the community that you live in. In this Webinar session, Nic Hahn will talk about how she asked for community members to be part of her classroom. As art teachers, we know the powerful learning that takes place every day in our Art Studios. We know the process of problem-solving, the high engagement from students, and the authentic experiences that we create for our students. Learn how Nic invited her community to be a part of the magic in the classroom and start thinking of how you can tailor a similar experience for your classroom as well.
