Teaching arts and creativity in the 21st century

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
Does your art school need to be more inter-disciplinary and international?

Art education is the core of many schools all around Europe. In these schools, artistic disciplines such as art, dance, drama, media and music meet more academic-focused disciplines. The synergy between these disciplines is essential to maintain a high qualitative standard in education, but also to nurture the talents and interests of students.
The course incorporates workshops and meetings with local artists and organisations involved in art education as a way to learn new resources to use at school. Every session will also have a debriefing and coaching aspect, where the participants can discuss and identify action plans to implement at their schools.
To help the schools get in touch with other local and international organisations, you will attend practical sessions about EU digital tools (such as the European School Education Platform and Selfie for teachers), and other online platforms which can be used to connect with other European and local entities.
Join our course to learn new resources and be inspired by how other local and international organisations deal with art education projects!
