re: [teacherartexchange] Summer Art programs for Teachers--- try UArts in Philadelphia, PA


Date: Fri Nov 14 2008 - 20:29:46 PST

Hi All, I highly recommend the Summer program called Continuing Inspiration at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. They offer 3 different areas in South Eastern PA,  Philadelphia, Bucks County, and Wayne PA.
See below that they will post the detailed info in March 2009.
I will be attending the one in Bucks County this Summer.

Continuing Inspiration
Continuing Inspiration enables participants to develop the means and methods to enhance art applications and techniques for use in teaching and learning.  The primary source for study is provided by experiences in studio, complemented by art history lectures, museum and gallery visits.  Studio choices may include Printmaking, Jewelry Making, Painting, Ceramics: Throwing, Glass: Slumping, Digital Photography and Imaging, Digital Video, and Book Arts.   All course materials are designed to enhance perceptual skills used in the visual arts and improve instructional strategies directly applicable to educational curriculum, in various classroom environments.  Open to both art teachers and non-art teachers. 

Summer 2009 information will be posted in March.

Thanks again to everyone who responded with info about cameras and  
digital.  I think I e-mailed everyone individually but in case I missed  
you, you were all really helpful.   I'm waiting on a grant request but  
should be able to buy at least some cameras and tablets from my budget.  
   I will soon have a website to share back, thanks to one of my great  
advanced digital students.

Does anyone have suggestions for quality summer art workshops 3 days-2  
weeks long preferably in a West or East Coast state?  My priority would  
be digital art/animation, but mixed media, printmaking, and book arts  
are also of interest.  My teen-age daughter is interested in digital  
and ceramics and if we can find a place we can both attend  
simultaneously or back to back, that would be ideal.  I'm looking at  
SCAD's programs.  Any other suggestions?  I teach high school  
Printmaking, Drawing and Painting, and Digital Art and Design.

Thank you,
Claire d'Anthes
