Art21 Educators: Contemporary Art in Contemporary Classrooms 2009-2010

Are you interested in contemporary art?
Are you a K-12 art and/or media teacher?
Do you teach in Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York?

Art21 Educators is a year-long professional development initiative designed to cultivate and support K-12 art educators interested in bringing contemporary art, artists, and themes into their classrooms. Join a national group of educators to explore, discuss, design, and document curriculum around the art of our times.

We’ll kick off the year with a 5-day workshop in NYC (July 15-21) and continue meeting virtually each month using online technologies and city-specific field trips. Art21 is looking for art and media teachers in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City to start. The initiative will expand to include additional cities and subject areas in future years.
