The Orpheum Theatre Group (OTG) is proud to be a Kennedy Center Partners in Education Team, in collaboration with Memphis Shelby County Schools. Through this program, OTG brings Kennedy Center teaching artists to work with teachers across the Mid-South. These arts integration specialists provide educators with the tools and strategies to transform classrooms.
Arts integration, as defined by the Kennedy Center, is “an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form.” Arts integration learning has shown to increase literacy, raise test scores, and help develop key communication skills. In short, arts integration makes learning fun while creating more enthusiastic, creative, and empathetic students.
Registration is now open for professional learning workshops through Kennedy Center Education’s Changing Education Through the Arts (CETA) program! These workshops provide educators with arts learning and arts integration strategies that give students an engaging way to experience active, joyful learning—no matter the classroom setting.

Workshops take place virtually. Space in these workshops is limited. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, so register today!
