Montana Teaching Artist Weekend
Hosted by the Montana Arts Council and the Holter Museum of Art
Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18, 2015
A professional development and networking opportunity for teaching artists serving schools and communities across Montana.
Teaching artists fill a critical need for arts education for learners young and old in the Big Sky. Join the Montana Arts Council and Holter Museum for a professional development opportunity that will help you sharpen your skills as an artist, educator and advocate for high-quality arts education for all Montana students. This opportunity is open to teaching artists of all disciplines who provide hands-on learning experiences to learners in school, after school, and in non-traditional learning environments.
Highlights of the weekend will include an opening reception Friday night at the Holter Museum of Art with a keynote speaker to be announced, and opportunities for teaching artists to network with each other.
Saturday’s schedule will include a plenary workshop on arts learning and the brain, along with workshops on effectively marketing your skills, and building strong school and community partnerships.
The full agenda will be announced soon. Registration will be free, but limited to 40 total participants. Lodging will be available at the discounted state rate to all participants.
REGISTRATION WILL OPEN FEBRUARY 4, 2015.
