SU 2018 – Teaching Art to Adults

Venue: 1131 Mission Street

Teaching Art to Adults

Working with adults is the most rewarding and challenging teaching you will ever do. This workshop outlines some basics of preparing and teaching adult education courses. We will discuss a number of practical topics, including how to write your syllabus, creating materials lists, and how to handle a classroom containing both beginners and advanced students. Together we will write blurbs for the most interesting classes we would like to teach and discuss student expectations and goal setting. Each participant will leave with tools for writing a successful class proposal and syllabus as well as online resources for further study.

In response to the current COVID-19 situation, we require that all persons continue to wear masks at all times when in the Root Division space. For the safety of our students, artists, and extended community, we also require all students to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or same-day negative test results) for entry to classes held indoors at Root Division.

You may bring a physical copy of your vaccination card or via digital download through the State of California Digital Vaccine Record Portal here. (You may also provide a negative test result taken before each class session. Please contact us with any questions about the types of test results accepted.)

We ask this as a show of community care and a move towards continued safety while gathering in-person.
