Reflecting on the Art21 Educators Summer Institute

This past Art21 Educators summer institute, which was recently held from July 2-10 here in NYC, just FLEW. Sixteen art, science, Spanish, English, special education, language arts and social studies teachers came together with us for eight days of workshops, conversations, artist visits, studio visits and museum visits in order to explore ways of utilizing contemporary art to foster student learning.

Jethro teaches Studio Art, 3D Design, Ceramics and other art courses at Maple Mountain High School in Utah while Jack teaches 2D Art and Art History at Chapel High School in North Carolina.
