Barry Hopkins Art Educator Scholarship
Barry Hopkins Art Educator Application
2017 Scholarship to be announced soon! Thank you to all applicants.
Established in 2015
Barry’s contributions to the profession were cut short by his untimely death. He had a tremendous impact on the professional lives of many of our colleagues, especially those teachers who participated in the NYSATA Summer Institute, which he helped establish. The scholarship provides financial support to enable a NYSATA member art educator who has never attended the NYSATA Summer Institute to attend at the Great Camp Sagamore. The scholarship includes registration fees, lodging, instruction, some materials, meals, and certificate of participation.
***Thanks to matching funds from the Great Camp Sagamore, a second scholarship will be awarded to a runner-up. The runner-up will receive a 50% discount on the registration fee for the institute.
All scholarship applications are due January 30.
NYSATA Summer Institute 2017
NYSATA 26th Annual Summer Institute
Come back to nature and reawaken your spirit as an artist. This professional development week offers over 50 hours of hands-on art exploration based on the New York State Learning Standards. Special effort is made to infuse the natural sciences, social studies/geography of NYS, music, math and English language arts into the visual arts offerings as encouraged by the Common Core Learning Standards. Field excursions, studio time, plein-air painting, and onsite Adirondack art all add to the richness of the program content.
The Adirondack State Park provides a perfect setting for a week of total immersion. Sagamore also presents educational tours, 20 miles of hiking trails, a private lake for swimming and canoeing, with many nearby museums and galleries. Sleeping accommodations are in beautiful authentic historic buildings. This national landmark dating from 1897, built by W. W. Durant, was the summer retreat of the Alfred G. Vanderbilt family for over 50 years. Buffet style meals are prepared by Sagamore’s chef and served in the paneled dining hall that overlooks Sagamore Lake.
