Inclusion Best Practices in Arts Education Settings

Last Date:


Just in time for summer camp season! This workshop designed for teaching artists will help improve confidence and increase skill sets in facilitating arts education experiences for Pre K-12 students of all abilities in an inclusive setting.  Topics explored will include a basic overview of disability and inclusion philosophy and language, general and individual student accommodations and strategies, creating a culture of social inclusion, and supporting positive behavior.  Participants will gain a broader understanding of both the philosophy and practice of inclusion, as well as tangible resources and strategies that can be implemented within their classroom practice. 

Diane Nutting works at the intersections of arts, disability, and education. Ms. Nutting is an accessibility and inclusion consultant and practitioner focusing on cultural arts and arts education settings. Her recent collaborations include projects with the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Arts Midwest, Disney Theatrical Group, Strathmore, Ford’s Theatre, and the United States Botanic Garden. Previously, she served nine years as the Director of Access and Inclusion for Imagination Stage, where she led the design and implementation of accessible and inclusive performing arts experiences for all students, patrons, and artists.
