 NYSATA Region 7 Art Teachers' Symposium Merging Mind and Medium 

A full day of professional development workshops and presentations
Saturday, April 30, 2022, SUNY New Paltz
9:00-4:00 PM, with Registration starting at 8:00 AM

The contemporary art classroom is faced with old and new challenges. We continually strive to develop students who can manifest their ideas in materials and through processes that visualize personal and expressive voices. In our classrooms we invite students to use a variety of artistic media, symbols, and metaphors to communicate their own ideas and to respond to the artistic communications of others. Art teachers are faced with evolving and emerging technology, new perspectives on traditional media, and the need to explore combining approaches to art making. Though these Symposium workshops will present methods and materials that have been tried and tested in the presenter’s classroom, fresh approaches, experimental and novel methods, and the introduction of innovative materials and processes.

Presented by NYSATA Region 7 in partnership with the SUNY New Paltz Art Education Department
