CAH in the Community – Upcoming Workshops
The Joys, Challenges and Opportunities of Virtual Learning
In partnership with DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) will offer a panel discussion about offering creative programs in the virtual realm.
Teaching artists of various disciplines will offer their perspective on what teaching virtually has been like during this last year, and the lessons they’ve learned. This event is great for professional artists, educators, and program managers who: are interested in teaching virtually, just starting to offer virtual programs and would like some new ideas in how to continue virtual programs.
