Approved for Manatee and Sarasota County art educators, this two day retreat is presented in partnership with the Ringling College of Art & Design and the Curriculum and Instruction Department of the Sarasota County School District.  The retreat is designed to reinvigorate educator's teaching practices while inspiring their art and art integration skills.  Teachers will participate in the creation of art as they learn new skills and strategies for inspiring their students.  All resources will be linked to Florida's NGSSS Visual Arts Standards.

Space is very limited in this retreat. Teachers wishing to participate must submit the below online application and will be notified shortly thereafter of their acceptance.

Embracing Our Differences believes that diversity is one of the world's greatest assets and that everyone should be respected, included and valued for their individuality. Our goal is to create a community where diversity and inclusion are honored while teaching the importance of moving beyond tolerance to genuine acceptance. Respect is not only a way of thinking - but most importantly, of acting.

I understand that by participating in this retreat I will be REQUIRED to engage my students in submitting art for the 2020 competition. Additionally, I have received administration approval to participate in both days of the retreat.
