Summer Art Institute: From the Heart — Storytelling and the Arts

July 22 – 26, 2019 | 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily

Maryhill Museum of Art offers a week-long Summer Art Institute for educators and artists alike. This year we will discover the power of stories – a central element of human experience, how we explain and make sense of the world.  This five-day intensive program will strengthen your knowledge of art and provide strategies for using art as a storytelling mechanism in the classroom. We will explore the art of print-making and book-making to create visual stories and dip into storytelling in the performing arts. The Institute is led by Maryhill’s executive director, Colleen Schafroth, and features guest artists and presenters throughout the week. Extracurricular activities can include visits to artist’s studios and regional institutions.
