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

We offer the following customized programs to meet your needs:
- School Events
- Artist Residencies

Appel Farm also believes that arts education professional development is essential to teacher and student growth.

We also offer Arts Content Workshops for teaching professionals to enhance their knowledge of specific art techniques and genres.
