Ready or not, like it or not, distance learning has come to education in the creative arts. If you are a visual arts, writing, or performing arts teacher who could use some intensive mentoring before going back to school this fall, the Breakfast Club will give it to you. Over a period of two weeks, you will build confidence working with other creatives in a simplified distance learning environment. Expect to translate the best of your knowledge into problem-based learning activities you can take online. We will work hard (after breakfast) and have fun with adult peers. Share challenges and creative solutions. Expect to use Zoom and other free online tools together for Club activities.
