Philadelphia UARTs I did that a couple summers ago lots of fun loved
touring the city and the Murals cools restraunts we stayed ata holiday in
within a block or two of the University and they had free breakfast with the
room. WE could walk to class. The jewelry class was well worth it , we also
had some take the digital photog class our teacher was a dud he had students
doing most of his work he hardly came to our class. he gave no handouts or
anything. He expected us to all know already what we were doing and they
have all macs and for us non mac useres we were slow and he did not like
waiting on us. The other photog class with a younger gentleman was great
that bunch had all kinds of info to take home, we had none in the other
class . But the city is worth the art experience itself .

UArts in Philadelphia, PA
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.
Philadelphia, PA: August 2009
Continuing Inspiration: An Annual Presentation of
The Professional Institute for Educators
A Summer Renewal for Creative Educators
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.
Questions, registration, or to join our mailing list:
E mail: PIE@uarts.edu or call 215-717-6092 .
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.
