Professional Development Opportunity: Calling Educators And Artists
Artists and primary/middle-school teachers are invited to attend Flying Arts’ innovative Connecting Arts with School Curriculum (CASC) seminars at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum this weekend. Aimed at both educators and artists, the attendees will come away with new skills and ideas to confidently plan and deliver art lessons to complement the Australian School Curriculum.
This free professional development opportunity will be held over two days; Saturday 18 June (10am - 4pm) and Sunday 19 June (10am - 1pm).
For artists interested in working with teachers in schools, these workshops will give them a head-start on working collaboratively to address curriculum requirements and to improve student learning outcomes.
Attending primary and middle-school teachers will develop ideas to better address the requirements of visual arts curriculum and incorporate them into the classroom. They will also discover how the visual arts can be a valuable and effective tool to connect with other areas of education as well.
All attendees will establish valuable connections between artists and arts educators in the Gladstone region, strengthening community ties and forging long-lasting collaborative relationships.
The workshop is presented by a Flying Art Alliance Inc. trainer and is Professional Development (PD) Certified. At the end of the second workshop each participant will receive a graduation certificate. All materials are provided FREE for attendees; however they are required to BYO lunch.
Those interested must RSVP as spaces are limited. Visit http://flyingarts.org.au/whats-on/casc-gladstone/ to reserve you spot.
The Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum's usual opening hours are 10am - 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
