Education Summit

September 9, 2012 @ 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Join the Art Center’s Education community to learn about the many people, programs, and studios that make up our education work.

The day will start with presentations by staff and teaching artists about fall courses and programs. Afterward, explore our studios with hands-on art making activities for the whole family during our Second Sunday event. We’ll close the day with a panel discussion led by Dawoud Bey, one of Chicago’s (and America’s) most powerful artists, who will address the question, “Why Does Art Matter?” Joining Dawoud will be Chicago artist and educator Faheem Majeed and Ray Elementary Principal Tatia Beckwith.

And while you’re here, don’t forget to register for classes! We’ll have a special registration area to help you choose the course that’s best for you, with staff on hand to answer any questions.

Fall quarter begins October 1, so this is a great chance to make it an artful season with the Art Center!
