Making Art Together

The Carle's Teacher Institute - Registration Extended

If you're like me, you had the realization last week that summer is (gasp!) halfway or more than halfway over. Picking blueberries in the warm sun did it.  The overwhelming sense that this is the exact time of year I long for two weeks into January when I think the sun will never shine again hit me like a train. It got me looking at the ol' calendar and thinking, "holy cow, it's late July?"

Has this happened to you?

If you're an educator or librarian (or someone else who works with kids) and you're realizing you never got around to registering for The Carle's Teacher Institute  August 2 - August 3, 2014 do not fret! The registration deadline has been extended to July 31, 2014.

Philip Yenawine, co-founder of Visual Understanding in Education (VUE) is the keynote speaker.

Diana and I are each leading a workshop in the Art Studio (mine on Saturday morning, hers on Sunday) called Visual Thinking Strategies in The Art Studio: Exploring Materials.
