The Right Brain Initiative



Our very talented roster of teaching artists are individuals and organizations who have demonstrated a well-honed expertise and enthusiasm for interdisciplinary learning and collaboration with teachers.

New artists are added to the roster most every year, and all artists and organizations further benefit from participation in our professional development throughout each school year.
