  • Participants on the Chronogram Conversations Arts Education During the Pandemic Zoom call on June 30.

On June 30, Chronogram hosted a virtual conversation on arts education during the pandemic with a panel of distinguished arts educators and administrators, sponsored by Cornell Creative Arts Center.

Once COVID-19 hit in Mid-March, schools and arts organizations across the region shifted from in-person classes to digital instruction. As the Hudson Valley continues the reopening process in to the summer, art education remains a predominately virtual experience. We spoke with teachers and administrators about what how the virtual teaching experience has played out thus far for students and teachers, and what the future holds for arts education. Panelists included Bryant "Drew" Andrews, executive director of Center for Creative Education; Nicole Fenichel-Hewitt, executive director of The Art Effect; Emily Dykeman, technical director at Hudson Valley Performing Arts Lab; Rachel Jacob, art director at Cornell Creative Arts Center, and Sarah MacWright, a photography teacher and arts department chair at Millbrook School. (MacWright has written an essay for Chronogram on teaching during the pandemic with an artist's mindset.)

  • Clarkson’s Beacon Institute Is Moving to Its New Home at Dennings Point This Month

    For over a decade, Clarkson University’s Beacon Institute has been a mainstay of downtown Beacon. From its location on Main Street, the Institute has become a leading voice in research into healthy water solutions in the region and has been an important local resource for STEM-driven educational programs for K-12 students, families, and the public alike. This June marks a major milestone for the growth of the Institute, as it officially relocates just a few miles south to Dennings Point—a scenic 64-acre peninsula that juts into the Hudson River and is part of the Hudson Highlands State Park.
