New CIA building taking shape; set for December completion
March 2015 event to feature speakers, workshops, community organizations
First things first: art teachers – and others who work with children and teens – need opportunities to: learn about art and design careers, develop new content for their classes, and network with arts organizations and one another. CIA’s FIRST symposium will provide just such opportunities on Saturday, March 28, 2015, from 9:30am to 6pm.
FIRST was conceived as a bookend to CIA’s annual NEXT program. Held in October, NEXT introduces high school and transfer students to career and educational options in art and design fields through panel discussion led by recent CIA graduates and hands-on workshops in CIA studios. By contrast, FIRST focuses on teachers and others who support and develop visual art and design education and outreach programming. Through this symposium, educators will be able to network with artists and organizations, as well as one another, and access valuable resources for developing art outreach programming.
All participation in FIRST workshops and related activities will be free and open to the public. The day-long event will include several morning breakout sessions to help educators develop content for class lessons, including:
The afternoon will include behind-the-scenes tours of local resources for art educators, such as Case Western Reserve University’s think[box] fabrication facility, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland, and the Cleveland Museum of Art. Before concluding with a networking reception in CIA’s Reinberger Galleries, guests will have the opportunity to engage in organizational “speed dating,” a round of five-minute presentations from participating nonprofits and community organizations with the goal of building connections and partnerships. A keynote speaker, to be determined, and panel discussion on “Why Art Matters to Cities, to Students” will conclude the event.
A registration form will be posted on this web page closer to the date of the event.
