This Teaching & Learning professional learning opportunity will provide content, material, and strategies to assist educators in meeting the needs of students in their district.  

Important Session Information:

**Please note, this learning experience is a virtual event and will not be hosted at a physical site.**

The American LOVE Project is a nationwide public art project built on: 1) the power of LOVE to heal and repair, 2) the power of ideals stated in our founding documents: The Declaration of Independence and preamble to the Constitution, 3) the power of art to awaken and educate hearts and make social change, and 4) the power of quotes from philosophers, artists, musicians, poets and more to express love of all creation.

Led by 29 Pieces, TALP follows in the footsteps of the 2013 Dallas LOVE Project. After participants are trained in our one-hour presentation, we ask teachers to do the project with their classes and be part of an online gallery and community exhibits throughout the nation.
