The Colorado Art Education Association is the recipient of a grant from The Da Vinci Initiative that will bring atelier-trained artist Paul Ingbretson to Colorado to work with Colorado's art teachers. This full-day workshop will include intensive training in realism drawing skills. The workshop will be held next Saturday at Sand Creek High School in Colorado Springs, CO. If you are an art teacher in Colorado and would like to register for this workshop, contact Vanessa Hayes-Quintana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week, The Da Vinci Initiative collaborated with the Florence Academy of Art to provide an amazing professional development opportunity for Jersey City Public Schools art teachers.
Dozens of art teachers had the opportunity to work with world class artists Jordan Sokol and Edmond Rochat in an atelier setting. Participants learned atelier drawing methods for making carefully observed still life drawings. The art teachers had the opportunity to observe demonstrations as well as practice their own still life drawing skills. They also acquired new lesson plans for teaching these skills in their home classrooms.
The Da Vinci Initiative would like to extend a special thank you to District Arts Supervisor for Jersey City Public Schools, Ann Marley, for working closely with The Da Vinci Initiative to provide this outstanding workshop for her entire district's art teachers.
