Introduction To Visual Art Blueprint Professional Development
The Office of the Arts and Special Projects provides citywide
professional development in the implementation of the Blueprint
for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. Central and regional professional
development sessions are led by master teachers—outstanding
public school arts teachers identified by the DOE—and teaching
artists—professional artists from local cultural organizations.
During these sessions, teachers explore the five Blueprint strands
of arts education and learn strategies for lesson plan building
and engaging children in the arts. Teachers participate in hands-on
projects, allowing them to directly apply the lessons learned
at training sessions to their classrooms.
