The International Artist Teacher Exchange

The International Artist Teacher Exchange (IATE) will provide an opportunity for educators to obtain George Mason University graduate credit while gaining professional development training in arts integration during a week-long Italian cultural exchange. Participants will identify and link teaching methods, discover strategies for motivating students, and then develop lesson plans based on their findings that they will then implement in the classroom. Up to 45 participants will join a cohort of teachers, administrators, and educators from Collegio San Carlo in Milan for this cross-cultural and cross-curricular experience. The trip's focus of study will be on how the Renaissance era influenced the development of the region's arts and culture.

Participants will travel from Riccione to Assisi with stops in Urbino and Rimini. Along the way, you will experience traditional art forms while working alongside Italian "maestro" artists. Participants will be immersed in the history of the Renaissance period and practice the arts of Puppetry, Renaissance Dance, Hand Engraving, Kite Making, and Cooking.
