Artist Educators Training

Past Dates:

February 7 & 8, 2019
9AM – 5PM


The YPT Artist Educators Training is for artists and administrators with experience in arts education and a desire to further develop their skills in program development.

Throughout the two days of training, participants will work alongside one another and in collaboration with invited guests from the community to reflect on what constitutes strong arts education practice and programming.

This program will provide professional development for those interested in developing their own arts education projects in school and community settings across arts disciplines.

Attending part one of the training is not a pre-requisite, however this training is recommended for experienced artist educators and arts administrators.

This program is made possible through funding from the Ada Slaight Education Centre at YPT and the Ontario Arts Council.

“Organized, productive, passion-fueled workshops don’t just fall from the sky. If they did, I imagine you’d spend your days looking upward, arms wide open to catch them. Alas, they take a great deal of behind-the-scenes work, and I wanted to thank you for all the time and thought you invested in making yesterday’s workshop the great success it was. It was energizing and inspiring.”
– RAE and playwright of Hana’s Suitcase, Emil Sher
