Teachers

Teachers across British Columbia are doing incredible work championing the arts in education.

In their classrooms, they can see firsthand the positive impact that the arts and creativity can have — boosting student learning, engagement and enjoyment.

Whether you are a classroom teacher, an arts specialist or a school/district administrator, ArtStarts can support your efforts to activate learning in and through the arts by connecting you with artists, funding, professional development opportunities and more.
