“Around here, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” —Walt Disney

As a teacher of the visual arts, our number one priority is to inspire creativity and curiosity!  There are many conditions in our lives and in teaching that can make this task more difficult than it sounds: new demands from our districts, new philosophies on art education that seem too “philosophical”, and days that can present challenges that derail lessons and distract both students and teachers.  Teachers have to find new ways to create that “inspirational energy“ and “curiosity” without feeling helpless, overwhelmed, or uncomfortable. 

So... “We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things (Disney),” and balancing the new with those personal strengths that have always made us great teachers.  In this workshop, explore a “new path” of ideas to inspire that creativity and curiosity in both your students and yourself!

This workshop is free and open to all art educators.  Pre-registration is required.

Cancellation & Class Policies

Cancellation Policy for Classes and One-Day Workshops in Petoskey

Student Withdrawal
Requests for cancellation by the student at least seven (7) days prior to the first day of class will be honored (minus a $20 processing fee).  NO REFUNDS will be given for a student cancellation made less than seven (7) days in advance of the first day of the class.

When Public Schools of Petoskey are closed due to inclement weather, CTAC-Petoskey classes are cancelled. We will do our best to provide a make-up opportunity for the missed class. Refunds will not be given if the student is unable to attend the rescheduled session of class. Workshops and one-time classes will be handled on a per-class basis. School of Ballet students are asked to make up the missed class in an alternate session approved by their instructor.

Minimum Enrollment
Crooked Tree Arts Center reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet its minimum student enrollment prior to the first class session. If a class is cancelled by CTAC for lack of enrollment, CTAC will offer a full refund to the student in the manner in which tuition was paid.  (Cash payments will be refunded by check.)
