On January 24, 2017 Exploring the Arts held a workshop on Culturally Inclusive Arts Education for teachers and administrators in our Partner School Network. Cultural strategist, Keonna Hendrick lead participants to consider new practices and attitudes for developing stronger relationships with diverse learners, artists and artworks, while improving cultural competency skills for multicultural art education.

(Other topics include Early Exposure to and Preparation for College, Improving Academic Readiness for College, and Creating Supportive Bonds of Brotherhood).
