The Tennessee Arts Academy consists of two tracks, one geared to elementary/lower middle school teachers and the other designed for upper middle/high school teachers.
Participants are grouped according to their specific teaching assignment, including courses in visual art, music, and theatre. A special session in school administration and assessment concentrates on fine arts assessment strategies, common core and arts advocacy.
Three sessions per day are spent in intensive study with a highly trained faculty of national and international experts gathered from both colleges and universities as well as from studios, workplaces and the professional world of the arts. In these classes the latest techniques are applied to instruction that will directly aid participants in their own teaching.
