History on a Palette logoVISUAL ART & HISTORY INSTITUTE:
History on a Palette          NOVEMBER 9-10, 2012

Meet the 21st Century classroom challenges with creative standards-based lessons designed to increase critical thinking skills and student achievement.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? History teachers, visual arts teachers, elementary teachers, curriculum designers, pre-service instructors.  Any CCSS, CCHE and CAEA member is welcome to attend this institute.

This year at the conference we are offering something new, an art and history institute within the conference--"History on a Palette." Because there are so many intersections, this institute meshed with the conference theme of Art: 21st C. Intersections. Visual art offers a window to the past and for many students art is the entry point into historical content. Conversely, understanding historical context helps the art student have a deeper understanding of a work of art and the artist who created it.



Choose between Institute TOUR or SEMINAR focused on a specific historical content.
Select ONE of the following:
