Notes from past participants:

 

This class was worth every penny! I hate to admit it, but I learned more in one month in this course than I did over two years of grad school getting my masters for Art Education. As a new teacher with only one year of experience, I found this course to be so immensely helpful and more importantly practical! It was so refreshing to take a class that helped me gear up for the school year and now that the year has begun, I’m already seeing the tools work! So there’s no question that I would and already have highly recommended this class.

This class was excellent and I very much enjoyed the readings and class discussions. I enjoyed the depth of the course and feel better prepared for providing a successful art classroom.

- Elizabeth R.

 

It is nice to be in a class that is centered around art education, where participants are all dealing with similar issues. The feedback, ideas, and suggestions are relevant to what I am doing in my classes. I always come up with new ideas to incorporate and this isn’t always the case with other courses. I also enjoy the online format. The way these classes are presented with discussions and deadlines help make me feel like I am truly in a class with other people. I have taken online classes before that don’t have this same kind of camaraderie.
