Event description

Description

For Teachers of Grades 2-8

The process of writing stories can be challenging for young authors. In this workshop, explore how students can use scissors, glue, and construction paper to create artwork that becomes the bridge between an unformed idea and a unique, descriptive story. Learn to use selected elements of art, such as shape, color, and space, to connect to story components (e.g., character, setting, events, main idea, and details). Participants will leave with workable, accessible tools for students to create ideas, think divergently and write creatively.

Kennedy Center Presenter Jamin Carter is an educator, artist, activist and minister who calls Memphis, TN his home. He holds a BFA in sculpture and painting and a MAT in visual art education.

As an educator he has many years of experience working as a public school teacher in several diverse, Title One classrooms ranging from elementary art to high school studio art and AP art history. Additionally he has served as a mentoring coach for elementary and middle school art educators across his school district.

As a national arts integration consultant with Focus 5 Jamin leads visual art and drama based workshops in schools, museums and arts centers across the country and collaborates with other consultants on new and existing workshops.
