International Educator Workshop

The International Educator Workshop is a 5-day introductory-level professional development workshop in Lincoln Center Institute’s (LCI’s) inquiry-based approach to imaginative learning through the arts. The study of works of art, guided inquiry, and the Capacities for Imaginative Learning® (which are aligned with the Common Core Standards) are the basis of all LCI workshops.

Discover how to elicit new ideas from your students and how to stimulate creative, conceptual thinkers prepared for the world beyond the classroom. Unlock your own imaginative learning, engage with works of art, share the insights of professional artists, and find new excitement in your teaching practice.

Lincoln Center offers this opportunity in 5 locations and on July 23-27 the event will take place at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland. The registration will take place online at Tuition is $525 per session, plus a non-refundable $25 registration fee.
