As an institution dedicated to the arts, we are especially well prepared to teach courses like music, photography, theater and poetry. To us they are not merely educational topics. They are what we do.
 
Our special passion for the arts is a passion for original thinking, the wellspring of art. It engenders in us a special reverence for what has gone before, what the pioneering thinkers have created and bequeathed to all of us.
 
We are enormously proud to be a member of the Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Educational Consortium.  Members assist in the design of the TPS program and offer TPS professional development on an ongoing basis, year round.  Visit www.loc.go/teachers/tps to view a current list of Consortium members and their respective states. 
 
TPS-UArts will fulfill the mission of this program by giving our all, as well as our art, to every teacher who chooses us to teach them.
 
We invite you to share this enriching experience with us. And to envision a better future for you professionally and for your students.
