Improvisation and Creativity at the Annual Art Education & Crafts Conference

Improvisation and Creativity at the Annual Art Education & Crafts ConferenceThe Department of Art Education and Crafts announces Improvisation and Creativity as the theme for its 79th annual conference to be held on the Kutztown University campus November 17, 2017.  Headlining the conference will be educators from the Upright Citizens Brigade, one of the premier improvisation and sketch comedy groups in the nation and the springboard for such improv greats as Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Horatio Sanz.  The UCB team will introduce improvisation and its potential for the classroom during the morning keynote session.  Later in the day, conference participants will have the opportunity to attend a two-hour workshop exploration with the team.  In addition, several concurrent sessions featuring related topics and workshops will be offered in the afternoon. Educators in attendance will be prepared to return to their K-12 classrooms with innovative ideas about motivation, inspiration and creativity.

Such innovation is the hallmark of the Kutztown annual art education conference.  For 79 years, the conference has upheld a tradition of providing cutting-edge professional development for hundreds of art teachers and others in the region, typically drawing from southeastern Pennsylvania and all parts of New Jersey.  The Department of Art Education and Crafts takes seriously its role in providing such opportunities for art educators, the majority of whom are graduates of its undergraduate and graduate programs in art education.  In addition to its annual conference, the Department offers an array of summer study institutes, some of which are in collaboration with artists, museums, arts organizations and other entities.
