It’s time!  It’s time!

Oh yes it is…

Time to officially announce the line up for the 2012 Teacher Art Retreat!


I am so happy to post the information many of you have been waiting for – the second annual Teacher Art Retreat is on for August 13-15 (8am-3pm at the Amesbury, MA cultural center) and we have a great time planned for you!  Each of the three days, retreaters will be participating in a composition workshop where they will go through the process of writing a song with the guidance of Debbie Ambrose.  Then each day, the teachers will be part of a great arts infused workshop.  One day we will discover The Art of Math with Amy Mitchell.  Another day we will create Vision Boards with yours truly.  And finally we will chart the territory of storytelling and history as we partake in Lori Cotter’s workshop Historically Speaking.   And along the way there will be movement and dance, collaborative creation, great food and more.  (There’s even a raffle!)

The purpose of each of these workshops is for teachers to participate in the creation of art as they learn new skills and strategies for the classroom.  The goal of the retreat if for you to feel refreshed with new ideas and invigorated to tackle a new school year.

*You know  you want this!*

So, let me define what we mean by “Teachers.”  Maybe the more appropriate word would be educators.  We want educators of ALL ages, grade levels and subject areas, those in the classrooms and those working in offices, aspiring teachers and veterans alike.  This is the type of professional development that inspires ALL educators.

Here’s a taste of what I mean:

We hope to see all of you at the retreat this summer!
