[Professional Development Opportunities for Teachers]

The Professional Development Program
in the Arts for Artists

The Professional Development Opportunities for Teachers Program provides professional development for artists who are interested in working with the Kennedy Center. We provide three events, each with a different focus:

The Artist Seminar

The Artist Seminar is designed for artists and arts educators who would like to develop participatory workshops for teachers. Participation in the Seminar is the "gateway" to potential work with the Professional Development Opportunities for Teachers program at the Kennedy Center.

Orientation for Workshop Leaders

The Orientation for Workshop Leaders is provided for new workshop leaders at the Kennedy Center each year to usher in the new season of Professional Development. Artists who are interested in becoming workshop leaders for the Professional Development Opportunities for Teachers Program should check out the Artist Seminar information page.

Workshop Leader Retreat

The Kennedy Center provides an invitational retreat open only to workshop leaders who have previously presented workshops for teachers at the Kennedy Center. Artisits interested in becoming workshop leaders should check out the Artist Seminar information page.
