DVI Sponsored Skill-Based Teacher Retreats for State Boards of Art Education

August 1, 2014

The Da Vinci Initiative is working with the State Art Education Associations, Boards of Art Education in the 50 states, to set up three DVI-sponsored skill-based retreats each year. For the 2014-2015 school year we are pleased to announce that the Washington, New Hampshire, and Wyoming Art Education Associations will receive free skill-based teacher retreats which include a nationally known skill-based artist to teach a workshop, space rental for 2 days, and art supplies. This allows for the State Boards of Art Education to become more familiarized with skill-based techniques like those taught in the ARC Approved Atelier Schools with the mission to help instill similar methods in public and private schools K - 12. Although DVI has a limited number of free retreats to give away, the organization uses their connections with artists to provide opportunities for education associations all over the country.

For interested individuals looking to take workshops geared for art teachers K - 12 and to discover an accessible approach to skill-based drawing education, there are limited remaining spaces in the upcoming DVI August workshops. The first workshop will run from 8/4 - 8/8 and the second from 8/11 - 8/15. The courses will be taught by the DVI President, Amanda Hallenius at the Aristides Atelier in Seattle, WA. Both classes qualify for continuing education clock hours.
