In Southern California, Meet the Masters employs art teachers that can come into your school to train your teachers or implement the art program for your students. Schools do have the option to implement the program themselves using their own teachers, docents or parent volunteers. Meet the Masters has over 40 teachers that actively teach the program in elementary schools in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange and San Diego counties.
Every month, teachers meet at the Meet the Masters warehouse in Irvine in order to get trained, trade teaching tips and make implementation adjustments to ensure a great experience for their schools with the students. The Meet the Masters teachers really look forward to these ‘training days’.
Here are some photos from the training last month:
