I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had parents tell me they don’t know how to teach Fine Arts. Yes, teaching any subject can be intimidating. But many people never received any meaningful exposure to the Fine Arts in their own education.
I hear the same thing from teachers who do exceptional work in their chosen field, but suddenly find that they have been given a new responsibility of teaching art appreciation.
What are reasonable goals for a Fine Arts course? Where do you find the materials? How do the Fine Arts fit within the overall curricula?
These are just some of the questions that we will be answering in our symposium “Teaching the Arts Classically” on Saturday, May 13 in Plano, Texas. We have a great line-up of speakers for this event. We also present a workshop in sacred music, an exhibit of the works of Russia artist Evgeny Fuk, and a panel discussion where we take on your questions.
