Lunch will be  provided. Cost $50 and a credit card will be required to register. The cohorts will meet in person three times as listed below:

Early Childhood and Visual Arts: Visual art and early childhood teachers are invited to apply and attend together for training three times through the school year. During these sessions you will be guided by an early childhood expert and an early childhood visual art specialist. You will build collaborative partnerships while you broaden your visual art skills, as well as developmentally appropriate teaching for preschoolers. Both teachers will learn strategies to be used in both in the early childhood classroom and the art room. The training will be aligned to Maine's Early Learning and Development Standards<http://www.maine.gov/doe/publicpreschool/documents/Maine-ELDS.pdf> and supported by research on the importance of arts education being available every day in the early childhood classroom. Over the course of the three workshop days, teams will learn a variety of visual art techniques and become more comfortable integrating arts education into the other learning domains to support knowledge and development. The training is free and each team selected will receive $500 worth of equipment and supplies for their classroom. Teams will meet in the following three regions of the state dates during the November, February, and April:
*         Northern cohort at the University of Maine, Presque Isle campus (Nov. 17th, Feb. 15th, April 12th)
*         Central cohort at Educare in Waterville (Nov. 7th, Feb. 6th, April 3rd)
*         Southern cohort location and dates TBD
