Let’s Talk About Art! How to incorporate looking at and talking about art across the curriculum.

October 3 through December 19; 8 CEUs

Registration Fee: $30 for members; $40 not-yet members

“Let’s Talk About Art” unpacks and demystifies strategies for looking at and talking about art with your students. Specifically designed for the non-art educator, this course will help you understand the basic building blocks of art and generate ideas for looking at and talking about art across the curriculum. Join us as we learn how simply looking at and discussing art can increase critical thinking, empathy, and also provide much needed stress relief. You don’t need a degree in Art History to lead an informative, engaging discussion about art!

The course is online, asynchronous, and self-paced, though all course work must be submitted by December 19th, 2022 to receive CEU credits. (8 will be awarded for successful completion of this course.) Instructor, Brook McGinnis, will be conducting weekly live check-ins via Zoom to answer any questions you might have or just to talk about all things arts integration!

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.

Refund Policy

The Wiregrass Museum of Art may cancel any class with insufficient enrollment; students will be notified and given a full refund. If a student withdraws at least 1 week before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for the full cost of the class. If a student withdraws 24 hours before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for half the cost of the class. There are no refunds after the start date of class, and membership fees are nonrefundable. Students are not enrolled until complete payment is received.
