Over a hundred educators gathered at the Sacramento County Office of Education for the Creativity at the Core Professional Learning Workshop – including elementary, middle and high school art teachers, administrators, and teaching artists from across the state.

Dr. Lisa Donovan joined us from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts where she’s a Professor in the Fine and Performing Arts Department.  She led a number of stimulating activities that explored artistic and cultural expression in the core curriculum that can be translated back to the classroom.  Dr. Donovan also discussed specific strategies to integrate the arts in English Language Arts from her book Strategies to Integrate the Arts in Language Arts, which was given to all attendees. 

Other featured presenters included:

Sarah Anderberg, Director of the CCSESA Statewide Arts Initiative
Jack Mitchell, Educational Programs Consultant at the California Department of Education
