|Master Teacher Program|
The goal of the Master Teacher Program is to produce quality instructors in the art of needlepoint. Multiple opportunities to design and create new needlepoint project classes are a part of the curriculum. Candidates are able to develop their design skills and become comfortable in sharing their knowledge and love of needlework with students in a classroom situation as they progress through the program. Throughout the three levels of the program, the candidate has the guidance of a proctor who has completed the program and is a Master Teacher. The three program levels are Journeyman, Fellow, and Master Teacher.
In order to be considered for acceptance into the program, a questionnaire and detailed application must be completed and submitted. Upon acceptance into MTP, the candidate must maintain membership in ANG, with dues current, throughout the entire program. Attendance at ANG Seminars is strongly encouraged with mandatory participation in MTP meetings at Seminar. Each year, the candidate must submit a piece of needlework (judged or non-judged) for the ANG Seminar Exhibit. Upon completion of each level, the candidate is expected to enroll in the next level within a specified time.
Those candidates not certified through another recognized needlework organization will enter at the Journeyman Level. Teachers who have received certification in canvaswork from other embroidery organizations will enter the Master Teacher Program at the Professional Fellow Level. In order to demonstrate a working knowledge in this subject area, it is required that the candidate complete the Color and Design Unit of the Journeyman Level.
There is an optional fourth level, the Senior Master Level, which entails an educational research project of the candidate’s choice. Upon conclusion of this optional level, the Master Teacher will receive the credentials of and henceforth be known as a Senior Master Teacher.
