Art Educator’s Conference: Making Art a Part of Daily Life for Young People
Registration at 12:45PM
Conference at 1:00PM
Close at 5:00PM
Although many proclaim that the arts should be part of every child’s education, the current reality of busy schedules, shrinking budgets, and competing priorities, frequently result in marginalizing the arts. How do we nurture a museum going culture and cultivate an appreciation of visual arts in young people?
Join us for an afternoon that brings together visual arts educators from schools and museums, curators and art administrators to explore, share, and discuss best practices in art education. Divided into two panel discussions, educators from the U.S., Singapore, China and Hong Kong will share their experiences. Participants will engage in breakout sessions to discuss their own visions, current practices and contribute ideas to inspire the next generation.
Panelists and moderators include:
- Rowena Cheung Po Man, President of Hong Kong Society For Education In Art
- Susanna Chung Yuk-man, Head of Learning and participation, Asia Art Archive (Moderator)
- James Heung Chun Bun, Chief Executive's Award for Teaching Excellence (Arts Education Key Learning Area) recipients (2006-2007), Visual Arts Panel Head, Hong Kong Taoist Association Wun Tsuen School
