Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire & VSA New Hampshire
Offer Arts in Inclusive Learning Programs

For more than a decade, the Arts Alliance has worked in partnership with VSA New Hampshire: The State Organization on Arts and Disability, presenting collaborative training programs promoting the use of the arts as a critical tool in early learning. For the past six years we have been awarded contracts by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts that have allowed us to build on this collaboration, expanding our services to preK-12 providers by adding a series of low-cost trainings as well as on-site, direct-service opportunities.

During the 2017-18 school year and the summer of 2018, we’re offering a series of programs for early-childhood educators and care providers, for teaching artists, art and music teachers, special education teachers and paraprofessionals, and after-school and out-of-school program providers. Family members, librarians and other care and service providers are also welcome to attend.

Our emphasis in all these programs is on active participation and on the principles of Universal Design for Learning.
