Notes from past participants:

 

The class was highly engaging and relevant. I don’t think I could get this experience anywhere else.

- Carey H.

 

I’ve wanted to blog for quite some time and frankly was too afraid to do it on my own. A peer of mine suggested that I take this class. Now I have my own blog, and I am posting every week. It’s been a confidence builder and has strengthened my practice. I am not an art teacher, but everyone in the class was so helpful as was the instructor. I also took Rethinking Kindergarten last year. This class was equally as powerful. These two classes have been my first experience with online learning, and I loved both of them. Peers in these two classes were so supportive, affirming and incredibly helpful with constructive criticism. I would totally recommend these classes, and I will be back again for another experience!

I feel this class was relevant, instantly applicable and engaging to learn in. While this course is specific to art educators, it has a structure that many educators could additionally learn from.
