IB Visual Arts Teacher Workshop
The Visual Arts Workshop (VAW) at Les Tapies in Southern France, offered in cooperation with the IB, is a category 2 and 3 workshop for experienced IB Diploma art teachers interested in expanding their professional development and engaging in an intimate community of like-minded professionals.
The Program draws on the rich artistic heritage of Provence and its unique light and landscape which has inspired master artists for centuries. Les Tapies is a beautifully restored 17th century hamlet with spectacular views overlooking the Rhone Valley and the French Alps in the distance. The excellent art studios in architecture, drawing & painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture are at the full disposal of the VAW participants. A special dimension of the program is the supportive community shared with art teachers, presenters and guest artists who come from a broad spectrum of schools from around the world.
The intensive four-day workshop is led by experienced IB presenter and examiner Andrew Vaughan. In addition joint sessions are offered with participants from the highly regarded Les Tapies Art Teacher Workshop (ATW), which reconnects art teachers with their artistic passion.
Dates: Monday 15, July - Thursday, 18 July 2013
Fees: 1.200 Euros includes presentations, local excursions and full room and board.
VAW participants may also extend their stay at Les Tapies to take part in the ATW, which is specifically designed by experienced art teachers and enables teachers to become students again as well as explore ways to strengthen their art departments. A highlight of the ATW is the full day excursion to incomparable Aix-en-Provence, home of Cezanne.
