The Education, Arts and Social-Emotional Learning (EASEL) Program
An innovative professional development program for elementary and primary school administrators.
Recognizing the urgent need for students to be engaged in their education and to find relevancy in their classroom experiences, the Inner-City Arts Professional Development Institute provides training in the arts for classroom teachers, school administrators, teaching artists and community partners.
The Education, Arts and Social-Emotional Learning (EASEL) program seeks administrators interested in learning how to bridge arts instruction with other core content areas through a lens of social-emotional learning and brain-based research.
Acknowledging the vital link between student achievement and professional development of educators, the EASEL program provides participants with tools and strategies to create exciting, supportive, learner-centered classrooms that empower both students and educators in being active facilitators of education reform.
"Not only am I extremely impressed with the quality of arts instruction at Inner-City Arts, but also with the outreach that's being done in the community.”
– Richard A. Alonzo, Superintendent, LAUSD District 4
