The brightest ideas begin with tiny sparks.
From IGNITION, you'll not only have access to strategies for integrating the arts and creativity into every classroom - you'll also be invited to re-awaken your inner artist, musician, or performer.
Get inspired. Get excited. Get connected.
Hosted at the University of Houston-Downtown, IGNITION connects teachers and teaching artists as the starting point for partnerships between Houston's outstanding, professional arts organizations and schools. Not sure how to create, sustain, or fund those partnerships? IGNITION tackles that question too.
The commitment to being an educator doesn't mean you have to give up your love for the arts.
IGNITION will have you rolling up your sleeves and getting back into practice - even if you feel you're "only good at stick figures," "can't sing a note," or suffer from "Shakes-fear."
Educators teach students, not just subjects.
When we say that the Houston Arts Partners Conference offers something for everyone, we don't just mean teachers of science-math-ELA-literacy-social studies-art-theatre-dance-music. IGNITION offers arts-based strategies tailored for including students with learning differences, English Language Learners, and gifted and talented students.
