Notes from past participants:

 

I learned valuable information that is pertinent to my art classroom! I have already shared some o the things I have learned about with mother art teachers and non-art colleagues!

- Nicole B.

 

I would recommend this class to a friend because I learned a lot of relevant information to use in my art classroom, I received graduate credits at a reasonable price, and I had fun taking the class.

- Mimi P.

 

I already have recommended this class, and others I have taken from AoE, to my colleagues who are in need of graduate credits for re-certification. These classes are, by far, the best use of my money and time and have provided me with real information I can put to good use in my classroom immediately.

- Ida O.
