Éducation esthétique Training

The ideal way to bring arts and culture into your classroom!

This training complements the cultural mediation projects in Place des Arts’ School Program. It is intended for educators who are seeking to further the link between culture and education, using a tried-and-true approach: the éducation esthétique. A cultural mediation training camp for professional arts presenters is also available.

The éducation esthétique aims to awaken students’ artistic sensibility. Teachers taking this approach are asked to work more closely with artist-mediators involved in one of the School Program’s projects.

Éducation esthétique Training

The éducation esthétique training given to teachers at Place des Arts is designed to further equip them to guide their students through Place des Arts’ entire school program.

It also provides an opportunity to meet the artist-mediators involved in the projects. These specialists will familiarize you with the éducation esthétique approaches and cultural mediation favoured by Place des Arts. They will guide you through an exploration of the content and educational tools relating to the projects.

Cultural Mediation Training Camp

The cultural mediation training camp is intended for professional arts presenters. The training was developed and is delivered jointly by the Place des Arts and Lincoln Education Center teams.

Participants, grouped into regional cells, are asked to reflect on and discuss ways of incorporating aesthetic education in their environment. Each of the teams consists of three people: a presenter, an artist-mediator, and an instructor. Each group is given a chance to develop a culture-education project that it can establish in its region.

A 3rd edition of the camp is scheduled to take place in Montreal from August 17 to 21, 2021.

The éducation esthétique training is made possible through the support of Quebec’s Ministère de l’Éducation.
