Join us this summer as the CSEA partners with the AGO for our second annual intensive, four-day National Summer Institute for Educators at the Art Gallery of Ontario focusing on the theme “CANADA 150: Where are We in Art Education?”.  The institute will focus on contemporary issues that are relevant to art educators across Canada in the fields of elementary, secondary, post-secondary, museum/gallery and community art education.  The program will include inspiring guest speakers from the art community (i.e. curators, artists, educators) reflecting on the current opportunities and challenges for the field of contemporary Art Education in 2017.  Site visits to other galleries (including the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the Royal Ontario Museum and Harbourfront’s Power Plant Art Gallery), will further enrich and broaden the scope of this art experience for all participants!

Summer Institute Cost: $349.00 (plus tax) for CSEA and AGO Members, $399.00 (plus tax) for non-members (Institute will be capped at 30 participants). Please register by June 1 for planning purposes.
