MAEA 2019 Professional Learning Workshops 

What lays the foundation for learning and creating art? What tools, strategies, and methods foster creative inquiry and the development of artistic thinking? What is the lifelong learning that our students will gain from an education in art? In this year’s professional development series based on the theme, “foundations,” we will explore the answers to these questions through art making and learning new best practices in teaching.

The Maryland Art Education Association offers a series of hands on workshops to invigorate your practice in the studio and the classroom. Register today!

Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 from 10:00AM-2:00PM; Washington County Museum of Fine Arts

Jonathan Hearn, art/photo teacher at Williamsport High School will team with Frank Herrera, professional photographer, to guide participants through themes of place and self in art making and teaching. Attendees will learn ways to personally enrich their own photography with a hands-on workshop experience as well as leave with ready to use lesson ideas. Explore these foundational concepts with fellow art educators and view the annual Cumberland Valley Artist and Photographers Exhibition, providing attendees with a fantastic opportunity to view the works in light of the themes being expressed through this day.
