Summer Teacher Institute at UW Art Museum

From Sunday, July 29 to Friday, August 23, teachers throughout Wyoming, Montana and Colorado will converge at the University of Wyoming Art Museum for the 2007 Summer Teacher Institute. Transforming Learning: The 2007 Summer Teacher Institute at the UW Art Museum is a concentrated, week-long workshop for teachers. The institute will engage participants as learners in the process of analyzing original artwork, exploring concepts, context, and techniques, and involve them in the making and critiquing of art. The new Ann Simpson Artmobile exhibition will serve as resource and inspiration. Under the guidance of master teachers and artists, participants will develop curriculum that can be implemented in their classrooms in conjunction with a visit to their school by the Ann Simpson Artmobile over the next two years. Exhibiting artists and master teachers may also be available during the Artmobile visit.
Transforming Learning is recommended for K-12 art teachers and teachers in other disciplines looking for new ways to inspire students to learn. Participants in the course are eligible for 2-3 university graduate credits or 2-3 re-certification credits (pending approval). There is a $50 non-refundable registration fee, and participants wishing to receive graduate credits will be charged $40/credit. Mileage, lodging for five nights and breakfasts and lunches for five days will be provided.
