Skill Development Offer for Artists

In Announcements, Classes on January 13, 2011 by danceumbrella

Are you an artist working or interested in working in schools or community settings?

Would you like to enhance your arts education skills?

The Royal Conservatory, with the support of the Ontario Arts Council (OAC), will once again offer the Artist-Educator Foundation course for artists who are already engaged in arts education and for people who would like to learn more about arts education.

This 30-hour course offers artists a window into working in schools and in community settings through hands-on, activity-based exploration. Because the Ontario Arts Council is sponsoring, the course, the fee for Ontario artists is $60. Course locations, dates, times, instructors and registration procedures are below:
