Teaching Artists who are looking to develop themselves professionally might want to check out Moore College of Art & Design's Teachers Summer Institute, which starts on June 27th, in Philadelphia.

It's an annual residential program and the theme this year is Recharge, Refocus, Reconnect.

Registration information is available online. Details below:

Under the guidance of exceptional teaching artists in painting, printmaking, ceramics, and photography, art educators are given the support and facilities to revitalize and advance their individual studio skills while collaborating with colleagues in designing inventive classroom applications. Curators from the Barnes Foundation will lead daily seminars dealing with issues in modern art and how to relate them to the issues of young people. Add to this Moore’s highly respected gallery program and access to the city’s vital contemporary arts venues, and you’ve got a dynamic framework for introducing new opportunities for teachers to connect with youth in the classroom.

The Teachers Summer Institute 2010 runs June 27– July 3 at Moore College of Art & Design, 20th Street and The Parkway, Philadelphia, PA 19103. The annual program draws art educators from as far away as Florida and Massachusetts. Participants earn graduate–level credit. For more information, visit, e-mail or call 215-965-4030.
