The goal of the Summer Teacher Institute is to empower educators to try new concepts and recharge their creative energy before the new school year. By attending this program, teachers will receive a CEU certificate for 18 contact hours. Teachers must attend all three days to receive their CEUs. One graduate credit is available through Ashland University for an additional fee. The program runs from Tuesday, July 16, through Thursday, July 18, 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. each day. All registered teachers will receive an email with the agenda for each day. Please provide an email address where we can reach you during the summer months. Registration is limited to 30.

Teachers of all grade levels and disciplines, homeschool teachers, art advocates, art appreciation volunteers, pre-service education majors and teaching artists, as well as community and museum educators, are encouraged to attend. The program investigates diverse teaching strategies for object-based learning as well as STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, Math) connections for pre-K through 12th-grade classrooms.

This summer enjoy a focus on the art and culture of Japan. Learn more about the process and historical significance of indigo during a dyeing workshop. Hear from members of our Curatorial team highlighting Japanese textiles and decorative arts in our collection and about careers in museums. Engage with objects used in a Japanese tea ceremony, along with presentations, workshops, and hands-on activities inspired by our Japanese collection.
