Appel Farm believes that arts education professional development is essential to teacher and student growth, not only in the arts, but in all areas. The educational landscape is constantly changing, the arts education field is rapidly evolving, and knowledge and resources for teaching and learning within each specific arts discipline are expanding. With this constant change, keeping your skills and knowledge current will give you and your students an advantage in achieving your goals.

Pedagogy Workshops
Explore ways to maximize learning outcomes by including the arts. These workshops can be geared towards content teachers or general education teachers.  Topics, which are customized to meet your needs, may include: National Core Arts Standards, New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards in Visual and Performing Arts, the New Jersey Model Curriculum, arts integration, arts assessment, arts education advocacy, and S.T.E.A.M.

Arts Content Workshops
Enhance your knowledge of specific art techniques and genres. Appel Farm’s highly qualified teaching artists transform teaching and learning in the arts through one or a series of sessions in creative writing, dance, media arts, music, theatre, and visual arts that are customized to meet your needs.

Creative Connections
Engage in programs that take place at Appel Farm, or in schools and other centers of learning throughout the year. Creative Connections is arts-based school programming that aims to transform teaching and learning through the arts.
