Studio A is a two-and-a-half day, peer learning experience that combines project-based learning (PBL), design-thinking, and arts integration. This workshop is offered by the Avonworth School District, in conjunction with the LUMA Institute, and Pittsburgh Center for the Arts/Pittsburgh Filmmakers and is made possible through the generous support of the Grable Foundation.

Studio A is a hands-on workshop for teachers and administrators in which the participants learn directly from teaching artists, LUMA Design Thinking instructors/practitioners, and experienced PBL teachers. Participants will also have many opportunities to network and learn from other participants. In addition to the workshop sessions, instructors are available during “office hours” to consult with participants and assist as they work on putting their learning into action.

The goal of Studio A is for every participant to leave with a project-based experience that they are ready to implement in their class.
