Teaching for Creativity Institute
January 11, February 8, March 1, April 12, and May 3, 2014, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Designed for teachers of all grade levels and subjects, the Teaching for Creativity Institute explores education and creativity through experiences in the galleries of the Dallas Museum of Art and the exhibit halls of the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. In-depth experiences with art and science cultivate our abilities to observe, envision, express, explore, engage, persist, and understand. Through these experiences, we may become more flexible thinkers, better problem explorers and problem solvers—overall, more creative beings.
The Teaching for Creativity Institute is an immersive five-part experience, and participants must attend all sessions. All interested participants must submit an application, which is now available online. Space is limited to 15 participants, and the application deadline is December 6, 2013.
