Professional Development for teachers of grades 5–8 • Presented by Barbara Helveston, Gifted Enrichment Instructor

The work of visual artist Piet Mondrian is often met with, “I could do that!” But could you? Take a glimpse into the life and work of Mondrian and learn how he developed his technique over the course of his career. Discover the spatial relationship between Mondrian’s subject matter and what we see in his work as we create our own masterpiece. Participants will discover lessons to assist students in noticing deeply and reasoning critically as they learn about this master abstractionist, and discuss ways to integrate Mondrian into Math and History lessons, among others.

Acadiana Center for the Arts

Our mission is fostering art and culture in Acadiana.

Founded in 1975, Acadiana Center for the Arts (“AcA”) is a community-supported nonprofit organization that fosters art and culture in Acadiana. Since its founding, AcA has developed as a major force, shaping the future of public education and community development in South Louisiana.

AcA supports the creation of new works of art, exhibits, festivals, performances, and public art across an eight-parish region that includes Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion Parishes.  

AcA aims to bring equitable access to the arts and supports fair compensation of artists. On average, AcA serves over 300,000 people annually and provides fair compensation to 2,700 artists.  

In 2013, the AcA merged with the Performing Arts Society of Acadiana (“PASA”), whose mission was to educate, inspire, entertain, and culturally enrich the people of south Louisiana by providing local access to a diverse range of the performing arts. This merger supported the vision of both organizations and provided much-needed support to PASA’s programs. Founded in 1989, PASA served as a leading voice in the performing arts in South Louisiana for close to three decades.
