The Course, called Artist/Educator Foundations, was held at the Pump House Steam Museum (I know, right? Steam has a museum??)

I only have a couple of pictures besides the ones of the buildings, since once we got inside it was GO GO GO all the time, but have a look at what I did manage to snap in my twenty seconds of spare time:

The space was cramped, there was nowhere to put coats or lunches, you could barely move between chairs and you were lucky to get a seat at a table. There was no coffee or food within 3 blocks, the bathrooms were directly off the main room and there wasn't even a water-fountain. BUT.. the people were AMAZING and it was such a wonderful time - I learned a lot about lesson planning, the dynamics of a classroom, and so much more on a personal and professional level.
A great experience - if you can go, you should! check out the Royal Conservatory of Music's website, or look through the Ontario Arts Council's opportunities. You never know where your next adventure lies!
