GT Art Program

Does your school/district have a gifted and talented art program? Who identifies Gifted and Talented Artists and how? Who teaches these students and when?

Please join R.S.V.P. ME on November 30th from 3:30 to 5:00 PM for a roundtable discussion about our Gifted and Talented Art Programs. 

Maine Art Education Association President-Elect and Maine Arts Leadership Initiative Teacher Leader Lisa Ingraham will facilitate a discussion about GT Arts programs: “I have been working on the re-animation of gifted and talented programming for MSAD 59. After receiving my GT Certification a few years ago, my district asked me to help coordinate our efforts to identify and serve our advanced learners. Since we had not had this type of programming for quite some time, I was involved in determining what GT would look like in our district from the ground up. Three years later our program is still evolving: I would love to share what I have learned and find out how other programs work around the state.”

Zoom Video Conferencing is done completely online.
