The Royal Conservatory is pleased to introduce a new suite of programs designed specifically for the needs of professional artists. Now is your chance to bring your skills to the broader community and achieve special certification - the first of its kind in the world.
The Lead Artist certification course blends a sequential approach to core educational content and theory with a creative "laboratory" environment in which artists can experiment with applying their art forms to the delivery of learning outcomes.
The first half of the year will explore such subjects as classroom management, learning theories, educational vocabulary and the culture of learning organizations. The second half will focus on topics such as how people learn at different stages of life, adult education, understanding the brain, and how to develop and structure arts-based lessons that are effective and engaging for learners.
Levels I and II will be covered in this 28-week course resulting in "Lead Artist" certification. Choose between either Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm or Wednesday mornings at 10:00am. The level III "Mentor Artist" course will be offered as a summer intensive in 2009.
Classes start in September so register today at www.rcmusic.ca or by calling 416-408-2825. All classes will be held at the stunning new TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning in the heart of Toronto.
