Our studio training for teachers program is designed to support a wide range of education professionals from around the world. This includes those delivering art programs at the secondary level, as well as anyone looking to incorporate arts-based learning into another curriculum. This one-week intensive program is based at OCAD U’s Florence campus studios and on-site at various key locations in the art and design community in Florence. The program will revolve around a series of workshops to develop artistic techniques and creative skills, as well as other activities that can be incorporated into class delivery, including tutorials on how to help students prepare art and design portfolios for application to post-secondary institutions or professional opportunities. Our program leaders will also facilitate group discussions around best practices, based around both case studies and shared stories from the group.
