Held at Nebraska Museums

Participants from across the State and beyond.

Participants engage in visual arts, music, dance and theater.

Participants include art teachers, elementary classroom teachers and teachers of other subjects who want to integrate the arts.

Participants work in small groups with experienced teachers as leaders.

Janine Moore, Chadron, and Sharon Seim, Omaha, have been group leaders for 19 years.

“I believe that you can integrate dance, visual arts and music into all subject areas. Not only will the students connect more with what is being taught, they will enjoy the process as well.”
