Arts Impact
Conference dates: 6/27-28, 8 AM – 4:30 PM

This arts-infused conference is about Engaging Heads and Hearts: Social Emotional Learning and the Arts. It will take place at the Blackriver Training & Conference Center at Puget Sound Educational Service District,
800 Oakesdale Avenue SW, Renton.

Brain science tells us that effective learning happens when our emotions are engaged and that students who are feeling stress, anxiety, or experience trauma in their lives face huge barriers to learning. How can teaching in and through the arts help engage students’ emotions and develop social emotional intelligence?

Join us for two days of dance, theater, and visual arts lessons infused with social emotional learning. Engage in ready-to-use strategies for teaching these critical life skills through PreK-5 integrated arts learning.
