Event Details

Young Audiences Arts for Learning Virginia (YAV) and Old Dominion University College of Education present 2017's Inspiring Teachers Conference!

The Inspiring Teachers Conference is an unforgettable learning opportunity for teachers to energize their classroom methods, learn arts-integration techniques, and try different approaches to core curriculum through hands-on experiences with different art forms. Through dance, visual art, theater, instrumental and vocal music, educators will explore math, science, history, literacy and more.

Facilitated panel discussions provide opportunities to speak to YAV's professional teaching artists on approaches to blending the arts with core curricula. Break-out sessions include in-depth lecture-demonstrations and movement opportunities to learn and work through an arts-integrated curriculum designed especially for specific grades and subjects.

Keynote speaker Andrew D. Watson is a Fine Arts Instructional Specialist for Alexandria City Public Schools. He was the recipient of the 2015 Art Education Technology Outstanding Teacher Award from National Art Education Association (NAEA) and is a leading Arts and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, together with art) educator. Watson previously taught art and design in the Fairfax County Public Schools, where he co-developed the FCPS STEAM Project in over one hundred schools. Currently, he supervises the arts education of over 15,000 students in Northern Virginia.

This Arts Integration and STEAM conference conference will have you moving, learning and connecting with arts integration professionals and other like-minded teachers throughout Hampton Roads interested in integrating the arts into their classrooms. You will leave with practical tips, resources and fresh ideas on how to approach teaching and learning.

Organizer

Young Audiences Arts for Learning Virginia

Young Audiences Arts for Learning Virginia first brought arts-in-education programs to children throughout Virginia in 1955. From its humble beginnings with a single string ensemble and a handful of volunteers, the organization has grown to one with nearly 200 professional artists in various artistic disciplines. As part of a national network, Young Audiences, Inc. receives the National Medal of Arts, which was presented by President Bill Clinton to one of our national board members, Yo Yo Ma, at the White House.
