National Symposium for Classical Education

For the Love of Making: Teaching the Fine Arts

March 23–25, 2022

Phoenix Convention Center (AZ)


The theme of the 2022 Symposium will be the fine arts—from music and dance to painting and sculpture—with a focus on the way students in classical settings learn, not only to understand and appreciate fine art, but to create it themselves. Making (poesis) is the experience which gives shape to the soul. This Symposium will bring together scholars and practitioners to explore how the skills, the masterworks, and the pedagogy all fit together in a seamless tapestry.
