Join us this summer as CSEA/SCÉA partners with the AGO for an intensive, four day National Summer Institute for Educators at the Art Gallery of Ontario focusing on “Exploring the role of the gallery in Art Education practice”. The institute will focus on issues that are relevant to art educators across Canada in the fields of elementary, secondary, post-secondary, museum/gallery and community art education. The program will include inspiring guest speakers from the art community (i.e. curators, artists, educators) reflecting on the current opportunities and challenges for the field of contemporary Art Education and their connection to museums and galleries today. Site visits to other galleries (including the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, the Aga Khan Museum and Harbourfront’s Power Plant Art Gallery), will further enrich and broaden the scope of this art experience for all participants!
Summer Institute Cost: $349.00 (plus tax) for CSEA/SCÉA and AGO Members, $399.00 (plus tax) for nonmembers. (Institute will be capped at 35 participants)
(Note: CSEA/SCÉA members will receive a one month advance registration opportunity before spots open up to AGO members and nonmembers.)
Institute cost includes:
Daily program of engaging speakers, visits to the AGO permanent collections and special exhibitions (including the upcoming summer blockbuster: “The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris” curated by Steve Martin and the AGO’s Andrew Hunter), all gallery excursions across the city, a hands on workshop at the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, daily light refreshments and a closing celebration on Friday afternoon and evening.
