Early Bird Discount until February 12, 2014
In this day-long workshop, participants will experience enhancing the exploration of cultural subjects (social studies, history, geography, biology, and art history) through the arts. In keeping with the cosmic curriculum, art will be modeled as a tool to deepen understanding of the cultural subjects and to make connections between disciplines. Art activities during this workshop will provide insight into history, geography and biology as well as art history. Multiple media will be used for these explorations. Spend a day with internationally known teacher educators and a professional artist and nurture your creative side while exploring how you can use art activities in your teaching.
Presenters are Jayne Kathman, art teacher at Xavier University Montessori lab School in Cincinnati, Ohio; Richard Reynolds Ward, an internationally known professional artist from River Falls; and Gay Ward, a professor in Teacher Education at the UW-River Falls and nationally known Montessori educator.
