The ELIA Teachers’ Academy aims to contribute to the professional development of professors, teachers and researchers in higher arts education by facilitating their participation in – and engagement with – challenging experiences and debates set in an international context. Teachers’ Academy Participants will:

The combination of these two dynamic events will result in a participatory experience covering the range of arts education pedagogy from process to production.

  1. I believe a solid training in the traditional skills is quite valuable, even essential, for most young art students, but I think that, once trained, each artist should find his or her own metier...simply replicating paintings in the academic style is a dead end and usually doesn't produce art, but taxidermy.
