“{AP Institutes} is the best preparation that I can think of for teaching and guiding students effectively through the AP process. An unanticipated benefit was the connections made with other colleagues, the opportunity to see their work and share ideas. In addition, this was fun and we were incredibly well looked after.”

Jane Sibley-Hager

“I really enjoyed the summer Studio Art AP training session with Kevin Cole. The course was informative and enjoyable and the facility was amazing. I would love to come back for professional development opportunities in the future. Highly recommend this course for educators.”
