NYSATA Region 7

NYSATA Region 7

New York State Art Teachers Association Region 7 represents Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester counties in the lower Hudson Valley. With over 200 members, we are a community of learners who are teachers – supporting and sustaining one another as we keep current with professional practice and research.

A unique professional development opportunity

Drawing Acts: Process and Performance
Thinking through Drawing @ SUNY New Paltz, October 5-6

Drawing and Cognition Research and Education Symposium
How can drawing act to help us think, learn and understand?

Drawing performances, presentations and workshops will explore how the drawing process can work to materialize and extend our ideas and perceptions of ourselves, others and the world in new ways.

Open to all educators, artists and others!  No prior training in drawing required.

New York State In-Service Teachers can receive up to 13 CTLE credit hours.

Take this as an opportunity to join the conversation, share studio and teaching practices, and try out something new!

Dr. Kantrowitz, the coordinator for the event, tells us that they still have space to include additional workshops, if there are those who think might be interested and have something unique to offer.
