Changing Education Through the Arts (CETA): Professional learning for educators and teaching artists

Hundreds of Teachers in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area learn ways to teach in, through, and about the arts. School Administrators learn ways to harness the power of the arts for learning. Teaching Artists learn ways to be more effective in their work with students and teachers.

"Our whole school is integrating the arts, thanks to the CETA program. The culture of our school is completely different because the arts are a regular part of instruction in classrooms on a continual basis. It has changed the way we define our school."
