Regional Common In-service Day!

The Erie Art Museum will host both art and music teachers for the Regional Common In-Service Day on Monday, October 9 from 8 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Cost is $15 per person.

Both groups will take a lively workshop with O. David Deitz, a consultant with the PA Department of Education on the PDE’s Standard Alligned System and how to make it relevant to art and music.

Art teachers will be treated to live demos by artists from the Pittsburgh Glass Center and their new mobile hot shop, activities in the extraordinary glass exhibit in the Main Gallery, and a lesson plan sharing session.

Music teachers will enjoy a workshop “The benefits of Sight-singing and Aural Training in Both Instrumental and Vocal Music Ensembles” led by acclaimed clinician, conductor, and high school music department chair of the Derry Township School District, Joe Farrell. They’ll also have an option for a break out session on an Erie program that has collected almost 100 traditional children´s songs from Erie´s refugee community.

You MUST register with IU5 by Wednesday, October 4th!
