This summer BPS was committed to offering a new exciting summer course for educators. I had the pleasure of running " Studio Art for Educators". It provided four wonderful days of art making to teachers in and out of the district.
Here is what teacher Betty Kerr had to say "I want to thank the Burlington Administration for offering the "Summer Art Studio - 2015, presented by Christina Chang. This "Studio Session" will be the highlight of my summer vacation. Each day offered an opportunity to explore a new art medium, & art technique, which was clearly presented by Christina. Students were also given the flexibility of revisiting the previous day's art project. The harmony, creativity, & serenity of this art enriched experience was shared by all participants."
