Saturdays, September 28 and October 19, 9:30 am–3 pm

Learn strategies developed by Learning Through Art's teaching artists that focus on looking at art, generating multiple ideas, flexibility, and an increased understanding of materials. Two U.S. Department of Education grants found that these practices improve students' problem-solving, critical thinking, and literacy skills. Teachers in grades 2–12 for all subject areas are welcome to apply.

$250 includes all sessions and resource materials for the classroom. Participants must attend all dates listed. Complete registration must be received by September 22. Enrollment is limited to 20 participants and we will accept registrants until the class is full.
