Two 5-day sessions: June 20 - 24 and July 11 - 15, 2022. Registration opens February 15.

2022 TAB Virtual institute

Join TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) this summer for a week-long workshop to develop, enrich and expand your practice. Together, we will learn through the lens of the theme “Healing Through Art”, taking time to process and reflect on our experiences over the past two years and explore how we can use the power of student-directed learning to meet the changing needs of both students and ourselves. Teachers of all experience levels will gain a deeper understanding of both pedagogy and classroom practice, as well as strategies for creating studio communities that empower all learners to make the art that is uniquely theirs.

Registration opens February 15, 2022. For more information, and to be added to the mailing list, please contact MassArt's Office of Professional and Continuing Education at
