On Saturday, November 8th, Arts for Learning hosting a special event called the Indiana Teaching Artist Institute. It was designed by our staff to help teaching artists of all levels learn how to connect their artistry with teaching.
We had special keynote speeches by Becca Barniski, Nick Jaffe, and Dr. Ena Shelley highlighting teaching and learning and what you know and the reciprocity of teaching. Also throughout the day, there were six breakout sessions. These sessions were taught by some of our teaching artists such as Rachel Kesling and Malke Rosenfeld.
The guests of ITAI all felt that it was a wonderful experience and took home valuable information. Mellisa Gallant, an Arts for Learning artist, even said that it was the best artist workshops that she has ever been to! A huge thank you to our Director of Artist Programs, Stephanie Haines for putting it all together! Our artists and staff appreciate your hard work.
