I couldn't be more excited about my summer! I am heading to New York in July to be part of Art21 Educators! This is a year long professional development that starts off in New York with an intensive 10 day workshop.
From the Art21 website: Participants work with Art21 staff, visiting artists, and guest presenters to develop their familiarity with contemporary art and artists and learn strategies for planning and teaching with big questions and processes related to contemporary art and interdisciplinary pedagogy. Accepted educators explore ways to use Art21 films and educational materials in the classroom, consider new documentation strategies and practices, and participate in collaborative reflection in support of their continued participation in the program throughout the year.
Art teachers are encouraged to apply with a classroom teacher to ensure collaboration and I am so lucky to have Linda joining me. Linda teaches 6th grade and truly is the best of the best! Linda and I are featured on Art21's blog here. Check out our video applications!
Soooooo excited to be part of this! I'll keep you posted!
