Exploring Materials and Teaching Methods with Lisa Pressman, MFA Painting and Milisa Galazzi, MA Education

The panel discussions about best teaching practices that we have engaged in for the past five conferences are moving into the art studio - for a whole day! We invite you to come explore art materials while expanding your own teaching skills. Using R&F pigment sticks, pastels, cold wax, and various mark making tools on paper, participants will engage in these materials while reflecting together on best teaching practices. We will partner with you to help you find or refine your personal teaching style. Time will be set aside for honing your teaching skills, expanding your 'teaching bag of tricks' as well as articulating and answering your unique teaching questions. Participants in this one day workshop are sure to get dirty, have fun, reflect on best teaching practices - and leave empowered to teach art in a rich and meaningful way! 

*PLEASE NOTE: Additional materials fees may apply
