Maryland Artist Teacher Institute
The Maryland Artist/Teacher Institute (MATI) is an intensive program of professional development for elementary and middle school teachers and administrators, conducted by master teachers, artists, and artist-educators. Through hands-on workshops, lectures, seminars, and performance, educators are provided opportunities to enhance their knowledge of the relationships among content areas and of ways that the arts can be used to integrate curriculum, content, processes, and skills. MATI was established to explore the arts as a force in a child’s development and enable teachers to become more knowledgeable, creative, and skillful in using the arts to engage children.
MATI is a program of the Maryland State Department of Education in partnership with the Maryland State Arts Council and AEMS.
