WILLIAMSTOWN -- Kidspace Inc., the collaborative arts education program run by the Williams College Museum of Art, the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute and MASS MoCA, is now accepting applications for its second annual Summer Teachers Institute. The institute provides professional development for teachers who wish to incorporate arts-based teaching strategies in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade classrooms.
The five-day institute program, which runs from July 8 to July 12, in North Adams and Williamstown, will focus on "word," as a form of communication with multiple meanings, for its theme. Participants will learn from hands-on presentations and one-on-one sessions with artists, professors, teachers, and museum staff from WCMA, The Clark, and MASS MoCA.
Participants will develop a project-based guide as a final project that will be shared on the Kidspace Inc. website. Professional Development Points and three in-service graduate credits from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (with an additional fee) will be offered for this course. Applications are due by April 26. The cost to participate is $125.
