January 2012

Thanks to a generous grant from the Meadows Foundation, the Texas Cultural Trust is partnering with the Center for Educator Development in Fine Arts (CEDFA) and The University of Texas at Austin College of Fine Arts to offer an opportunity for secondary art teachers to explore the curriculum of Art and Media Communications I. In order to introduce this cutting-edge arts class, a three-hour introductory professional development session for arts educators will be offered at no cost this winter and spring at school districts and Education Service Centers across Texas. This session is designed to introduce visual arts instructors to the curriculum and criteria to prepare them to teach the course during the 2012-2013 school year. A more in-depth three-day exploratory of the curriculum will be offered by the University of Texas at Austin in June, 2012.
