Teacher Programs

Recharge your creative drive and expand your toolkit

As a K-12 arts educator, you understand better than anyone the benefits of the education you provide: 

  • Innovative thinking
  • Technological savvy 
  • Curiosity
  • Empathy
  • Self-starting discipline
  • Ability to manifest a creative vision 

But when was the last time you immersed yourself in the arts for the sake of your own artistic and professional development? In Watkins teacher workshops you will engage with a cohort of inspired educators eager to do just that. 

In our Teacher Community Education classes, you will work with Watkins professors, professional artists, and fellow educators to develop strategies for incorporating thematic and contemporary ideas, projects, and techniques into your curriculum. You also will expand your own creative and professional horizons by making art in new and familiar media. Most important, you will revive the passion that led you to a career as an arts educator. Workshops are funded in full by the Memorial Foundation.
