Demonstration Schools
A select group of Regional Arts Teacher-Leaders annually open their classroom so that we may host professional development in tandem with focused classroom observation.  These professional development sessions are tailored to help visiting teachers collaboratively construct meaning and further their practice through observing colleagues in their day to day work.
Regional Centers Workshops
Perpich Center Arts Education Specialists travel the state to bring professional development opportunities to all regions of the state.
