Reframing Arts Engagement
We will also hold several break-out sessions, allowing participants to focus intently on curriculum development and implementation for specific populations (K-12 classrooms, university campuses, lifelong learners and general audiences).
Refining Best Practices
If you have any training in these methodologies, the Artistic Literacy framework invites you to leverage your expertise in new ways. If you are new to arts-based teaching and learning, you'll leave our institute with a fresh vocabulary and set of tools to engage students of any age to connect with works of art.
