I’m excited to announce that the eighth annual Summer Institute for Arts in Education will be held at Boston Arts Academy from June 29 to July 1, 2011. Summer Institute is a three-day conference for local, national, and international educators, geared for K-12 teachers, administrators, and district-level professionals who want to refine and reinvent their current practices, curriculums, classrooms, schools and districts.

The focus of this year’s Summer Institute is Art and Science: Examining Intersections Where The Two Meet. The program will include speakers, presentations and workshops focusing on the interdisciplinary nature of art and science. We are delighted that Ioannis Miaoulis, President and Director of the Museum of Science in Boston, will be our keynote speaker!

During Summer Institute (SI), themes of technology, engineering, and math will be explored through the lens of various arts disciplines to engage students and maximize learning. In addition, SI will also feature the popular workshop topics of literacy, advisory systems, and project-based learning. Contact Corey Evans at cevans@bostonartsacademy.org for more information or to register! I hope to see you there!
