2013 Lincoln Center Institute International Educator Workshop at the Farnsworth

July 22, 2013
Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Farnsworth Art Museum

The Lincoln Center International Educator Workshop is for educators and arts administrators who are interested in learning about imaginative teaching and learning through aesthetic education. Participants will experience performances and visual artworks, guided by art-making explorations that have been designed by Institute Teaching Artists.

The workshop contains:
  • 30 contact hours of artistic and educational discovery across 5 days
  •  Individual, small, and whole group discussions; experiential activities; research; and reflection
  • Dedicated time to explore and develop an understanding of the pedagogy of imaginative teaching and learning and gain strategies for bringing it back for implementation in one’s own practice
This year’s workshop will explore the visual arts through the Farnsworth’s American Treasures exhibitions, and the performing arts through Everyman Repertory Theatre’s performance of Three Chekhov Vaudevilles. Three Chekhov Vaudevilles is a comic collection of short plays written by Russian writer Anton Chekhov, adapted and translated by Michael Frayn. These lively, laugh-out-loud shorts celebrate the foibles and eccentricities of human nature.   Written in the late 1800’s as farces, or “jokes,” The Bear, The Proposal and The Evils of Tobacco feature a wide variety of recognizable characters who find themselves in the throes of absurd misunderstandings and intentions gone awry. This performance is suitable for all ages.
