Smash! An Arts & Education Collision
Are you an artist with great programs you would like to offer in schools and community centres or are interested in developing programs?
Are you an educator that would like to involve artists in your classroom but don't know where to start?
Then have we got the day for you!
The Arts Education Initiative invites you to attend a one-day mini conference on Arts Education.
When: March 2nd, 2012
Where: The Button Factory, 25 Regina St South, Waterloo
- 10am-12pm: Professional development workshop #1 for artists – Working with schools
- 1pm-3pm: Professional development workshop #2 for artists – Connecting your work to the provincial curriculum
- 4-6pm: Artisan trade show. This is the part where educators join in the fun and “shop” around the booths. Check out their programs, see their wares, talk to them and learn how they can help in your classroom
- 6:30pm: Artist showcase. Educators are invited to stay for our showcase, sampling the artists available to work with you in your school
Artists can register for the Workshops for only $20.00. This includes two informative sessions, and lunch. For an additional $10.00 you can register to have a table in the Trade Show. Use this as a unique opportunity to present your program, mingle with educators, discuss collaborative program possibilities.
Educators can register for the Trade Show and Showcase for free! Come and see what the fantastic Artists of Waterloo Region have to offer you and your students.
