Lincoln Center Education at MSU Texas


May 24 – 30, 2020


About the Program

The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture is excited to welcome Lincoln Center Education (LCE) to MSU again this spring for LCE’s Teaching Artist Development Lab from May 26-June 1. During the Lab, LCE will provide professional development training for teaching artists at all stages of their careers. Registration will be open to artists, educators, and youth development workers.

The Lab will include experiential workshops in LCE’s inquiry-based approach to arts education, guidelines for effective planning, and strategies for responsive facilitation. Wichita Falls will also present live performances, compelling keynote presentations, and plenary discussions led by international leaders in the field.

A three-member team from Lincoln Center Education will lead the Teaching Artist Development Lab. Jean E Taylor, master teaching artist and LCE’s Assistant Director of Curriculum and Instruction will oversee the LCE team. Additionally, Eric Booth, known as “the father of the teaching artist profession,” will be joining the team as a guest workshop leader for part of the week.

Important Note

Registration is limited to 35 participants. It is important to note that registering for the forum does not mean immediate acceptance. Registration is coming soon!
