Arts Integration Menomonie, a grant-funded organization, is providing local arts-based teaching opportunities for UW-Stout art education majors and early childhood education majors. With a goal of offering authentic teaching practicum experiences, the AIM initiative called PAINT — Program for Arts Integration for New Teachers — is open to UW-Stout students who are studying to become teachers but haven’t yet done any student teaching. They are working with four local organizations to teach classes to children based on the organizations’ needs and the skills and talents of the UW-Stout students.
