NEW! Senior Expo & Forum:

Cochenour Gallery, Georgetown College, Georgetown, KY
November 7 – November 21, 2014
Reception and lecture: Friday, November 7, 12:00-2:00 p.m.

Georgetown College is pleased to present Teach Talent. A team of researchers, Catherine Shelburne and Miranda Sosby, will explore the current issues in art education. Why is talent important? How can it be recognized? How can it be nurtured? Recent reports claim that there is a desperate need for talent outside the realm of what higher education provides. Creativity, emotional intelligence, and true enjoyment, lacking or not, are skills that can be taught. By simply implementing a few proposed ideas into the secondary school programs today, the team suggests, we can significantly increase our talent-pool for the future.

The project will launch at the Cochenour Gallery and run through November 21, with an opening reception on Friday, November 7 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. The related presentation by Ms. Shelburne will begin at 12:30 p.m., to be followed by a brief Q&A session. The gallery will host Teach Talent’s direct proposals, interactive teaching tools, and their ideas for curricular/content managing. All events are free and open to the public.

Both Catherine Shelburne and Miranda Sosby are 2014 BA candidates at Georgetown College.
