 We invite you to…open the link below and observe Melanie Rick, member of Focus 5 and a trained Kennedy Center artist/teacher present some of what was a part of our seminar in June 2017, incorporating drama and given by Sean Layne, the head of Focus 5.  Evaluations from participants from last year were the best we have even seen for any arts education presenter!



The 2018 artsBASICS Arts Integration Institute for this summer will be held at the new facilities of the Creative Arts Academy in Davenport and take place Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, June 11, 12 & 13.

There will be an opportunity for credit aligned with this seminar from St. Ambrose University!

Melanie will be concentrating on integrating the Visual Arts with Language Arts/Reading and also with Science.

Interested?  Teachers from artsBASICS Schools will be given priority in registration, however, anyone interested should contact…
