Art Retreat for Educators

June 21 - 25

 Join us for a long weekend of peace and quiet in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains and immerse in an art workshop for YOU.  Be the student, the learner, the maker.

Even though the techniques were sophisticated, I always find ways of pulling out things to do with my students.  Plus, talking to other educators about what they do gives me lots of ideas.  My principal agreed to pay for my workshop because my work at school improves when I come to Snow Farm.  . . . On bad days, I just re-read the catalog to see if I can squeeze in one more session!     educator, special needs, pre-school through adult

Snow Farm is a MA approved Professional Development Providor. Most states offer reciprocity. 

Flexible arrival on Friday, June 21.  If Friday conflicts with end-of-school obligations, feel free to join us on Saturday morning - just let us know so we don't worry.

These workshops include some special programming of interest to educators. However, non-educators are welcome to attend, too.
