MAWA Presents: Theory and Beer - Art Education Tomorrow w/ Stacey Abramson

  • Duke of Kent Legion 227 McDermot Avenue Winnipeg Canada (map)

Free, everyone welcome to attend!

Visual art and creative education is a critical part of the development of a 21st-century learner. However, the artwork being produced in the classrooms in North America today often reflects ideals and concepts from the 20th century, focussing on form and function while leaving out conceptual thinking. This Theory and Beer is a call to action for quality art education and a discussion about what art education could be. How can the ways we teach art significantly impact student art being made today for a better society tomorrow?
