ArtsLINK is a FREE arts teaching conference for university students who are interested in gaining teaching skills and a deeper understanding of best practices when working alongside young people in the arts. The focus of ArtsLINK is arts integration. Participants will rotate through theater, dance, visual/media arts, and music education workshops. The master arts educators have chosen the same book and built lesson plans that connect all of the art forms and content areas. Participants will receive a copy of the book, each lesson plan, a bag, breakfast, and lunch. Since the conference is open to College of Fine Arts and College of Education students from across the state, U of U students will have the opportunity to network and meet new colleagues.
