I was accepted into the Art21 Educators Program and spent 10 days in New York during the month of July. It was the most challenging, inspiring, and wonderful educational experience I have ever had! I didn't just come away with some new tips and tricks, I know I've experienced some growing pains in being challenged with new ways of thinking, and I have come back a better teacher.
Here is a little photo tour of my time there!
TASK Party. We got to meet Oliver Herring on the very first day- what a treat! He was so warm and generous and the TASK party was a great way to build our sense of trust and community.
Charles Atlas to talk about his work here.
Allan McCollum to talk about his art here. We also talked with Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley from Rome via Skype and visited the studio of Diana Al Hadid on different days.
I look forward to sharing what I have learned here and can't wait for the new school year. Bring it on!
