Workshop Overview 

Summer 2017 Dates: Monday, July 17, 2016- Thursday, July 20, 2017

The Visual Arts Workshop at Les Tapies in Southern France, offered in cooperation with the IB, is a category 1 and 2 workshop for IB Diploma art teachers interested in expanding their professional development. The intensive four-day workshop is led by experienced IB presenter and examiner Mira Módly. A primary focus of this workshop will be covering the new visual arts curriculum with first examinations in 2016. 

All Les Tapies Summer Programs draw on the rich artistic heritage of Provence and its unique landscape and light. Les Tapies is a beautifully restored 17th century hamlet with spectacular views overlooking the Rhone Valley and the French Alps in the distance. The architecture, drawing & painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture studios are at the full disposal of VAW participants. A special dimension of the program is the supportive community shared with art teachers, presenters and guest artists who come from a broad spectrum of schools from around the world. VAW participants may also extend their stay at Les Tapies for an additional week to take part in the Art Teacher Workshop.
