ArtsWeek provides a rich, engaging studio experience within a specific discipline. The program is designed for teachers across subject areas who are interested in innovative, creative approaches to education based on work with art-specific media. Educators work with practicing artists to explore techniques, concepts, history and more to enhance how students learn. The week provides the opportunity for teachers to become part of a creative community and share new ideas. Each ArtsWeek program includes a final reception and exhibition for all participants, and the creation of lesson plans reflecting the new skills and approaches learned.
Teachers earn PA Act 48 hours + graduate credits and develop useful tools to use in the classroom.

Patrick Brennan Postcard
While You Were Sleeping and Pocket Noise by Patrick Brennan, a Philadelphia-based photographer and UArts Digital Photography Certificate candidate, are currently on view on the 9th floor of Terra Hall.
While You Were Sleeping is a collection of digital photographs documenting celestial lights. Cinematic images depict dramatic skies patiently captured ib dark, clear nights.
Pocket Noise is comprised of images mined from accidental pocket photos, a common digital photography blunder. Brennan manipulates these seemingly banal mishaps, uncovering celebratory, psychedelic abstractions.
You can preview some of his work here.
The exhibition is FREE & open to the public.
