The Juneau Arts and Humanities Council presents a six-week workshop series geared toward artists who are interested in teaching in the schools. From Sept. 29 through Nov. 3, artists will receive in-depth training emphasizing how to work effectively with students of all ages in varied settings as a teaching artist, in Juneau and elsewhere in Alaska. Each session features expert teachers, administrators and consultants who share knowledge, skills and techniques to equip artists to work effectively in Juneau classrooms and beyond.
Each two-hour session will be held at the Juneau Arts and Culture Center on Wednesdays from 5 until 7 p.m., with a pie to be eaten at the end of each workshop. The cost is $50 for the series of six workshops or $10 per session.
One 593 credit is available for anyone wanting to earn a credit from the University of Alaska Southeast. For those earning credit, a paper describing what has been learned and how it will be applied is required.
This series is limited to 15 artists. Call the JAHC at 586-2787 or e-mail Franny@jahc.org. There must be a minimum of 10 artists registered on or before Sept. 17 to implement this series.
