 AT&T FUNDS ARTS IN EDUCATION WORKSHOP THURSDAY
 NEW YORK, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Three prominent New York City


arts organizations will make presentations at an all-day Arts and Education Workshop this Thursday, March 26, at the Third Street Music School Settlement. Some 35 newly appointed New York City Public School principals and teachers will take part in the program.
 The workshop, one of the educational training and leadership- building programs offered by the Council of Supervisors and Administrators, is funded by AT&T.
 "We want to make available to these newly assigned teachers and principals a broad array of teaching options," said Dr. Donald Singer president of CSA. "This conference will show them how the arts can be an effective tool for motivating and educating children."
 The workshop will feature demonstrations by Henry Street Settlement, Third Street Music School and the New York Shakespeare Festival's Playwriting in the School--local arts organizations that have successfully used the arts to promote learning, Also scheduled is a panel discussion by five principals from schools offering arts-in- education programs. In the keynote address, Dr. Maxine Greene of Teacher's College, Columbia University will discuss the history and philosophy of the arts in learning,
 As a follow-up to the conference, CSA will provide ongoing technical assistance to principals interested in integrating arts programs into their schools' curriculums.
 "New York City Board of Education budget cuts have diminished arts and culture programs in schools since the 1970's," said Susan Dessel, public relations manager at AT&T who worked with CSA to develop the workshop. "As a result, many of today's teachers and administrators have little experience using the arts to enhance learning. This workshop is an effort to make this highly effective teaching method more available to educators."
 The Arts in Education Workshop will take place at Third Street Music School Settlement, 235 East 11th Street, on Thursday, March 26, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
