The Inspired Classroom has been organizing Professional Development Retreats for educators for over 8 years!  We welcome ALL educators pre-K through 12 in ALL subject areas and specializations.  If you work with students and believe in the power the arts have on learning, you need to attend a retreat with us!

We host retreats in the summer and winter!

Teacher Art Retreats

Summer Arts Integration & STEAM Retreats

Our Summer Retreats (held every August) focus on arts integration and STEAM topics.   Over the course of the retreat, you will immerse yourself in the creative process, learning new skills and developing techniques to use in your classroom.  This PD is Teacher-Centered and fun!  You will work in a variety of art forms and get inspired so you can be inspiring to your students.

Summer Location

Our summer retreats are located at Hampton Beach in Hampton, NH.  Join us at the Ashworth by the Sea located across the street from the ocean.  It’s quiet, it’s ACed, has complimentary valet parking and is steps from the beach!

Winter SEAL Retreats

Our Winter SEAL (Social-Emotional Artistic Learning) Retreats (held in February) are the ultimate overnight experience for educators.  We focus on integrating the arts with Social-Emotional Learning.  Through Teacher-Centered PD, you will work hands-on with a variety of art forms that promote wellness, mindfulness and build social-emotional competencies.

Winter Location

During the winter, we head to Essex Woods Meeting & Retreat Center for an overnight stay.  Here we are secluded in a beautiful, natural location.  The center has plenty of space to meet together, create, and explore. Lodging is located onsite and in the evening we can enjoy the hot tub and sauna.  What a way to relax in the winter!

First and foremost, these retreats are for YOU.  We strive to deliver Teacher-Centered PD!  You will be creating, learning and bonding with other teachers who share the same love of education that you have!  Each workshop session is hands-on and fun.

Food and materials will be provided and you will ALWAYS be treated to some special surprises!

This is the kind of PD where you can relax and enjoy yourself while you learn strategies to bring to your teaching!
