Teacher Talks

February 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Creativity in the Classroom
6-8 pm
$15/$12 AGA Members

What is creativity? Join us for an opportunity to investigate the concept of creativity in the 21st century. In the Gallery and in the studio, we will discuss and explore what being creative really means and then connect these ideas to the practice of teaching. In addition, we will experiment with innovative strategies for expanding creative thinking, using hands-on methods and projects aimed at harnessing creativity’s potential in any classroom setting.

Teach Talks are informal learning workshops that focus on making connections between theory and practice in a fun and social environment. Each session features a new concept, gallery explorations and several hands-on art projects in the Singhmar Centre for Art Education. The aim of these workshops is to provide practical, hands-on projects AND inspire ideas that can be used in the classroom. Workshop themes focus on visual art concepts that can be used for all ages and can also be applied to other areas of the Programs of Study.
