The Lab School of Washington, with support from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, presents The Power of Art Conference, April 16–18, 2015: This is Your Brain on Arts.

In its twenty-first year, the conference includes a town hall with national voices in the arts, a day of workshops led by teaching artists at The Lab School, a fully arts-based school for students with learning differences, and workshops at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. Participants will learn how to advocate for the arts, integrate the arts into core courses, and incorporate new practices into their teaching. The Lab School will provide for the programming costs for the three days, hotel accommodations, and meals. Admission to the conference is competitive and limited to forty visual and performing arts educators across the United States. Applications are open now through February 1, 2015.
