Arts Workshop for Educators: London
Wed, March 22, 2017, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM EDT
Hindman Settlement School and Partners for Education at Berea College are hosting a one-day interactive professional learning opportunity for elementary, high school, and community-based educators and artists on engaging students in Appalachian traditional music and storytelling entitled Transforming Your Teaching through the Arts: Creative Strategies for an Engaged Classroom.
Two identical workshops will be held at two different locations throughout the region. On Tuesday, March 21 the session will be held at Hindman Settlement School and on Wednesday, March 22 at the Laurel County Cooperative Extension Office in London, KY.
The workshop is designed for both arts and non-arts educators and will provide tools, strategies, and resources to create engaging, creative spaces for multidisciplinary learning. No art skills are needed in order to participate or use these approaches in your classrooms!
CRANKIES IN THE CLASSROOM
Anna Roberts-Gevalt & Elizabeth LaPrelle, acclaimed folk artists, will guide participants in developing
crankies or moving panoramas, an old storytelling art form, as a tool for creativity in the classroom.
Additional sessions on KDE art updates and cross-curricular connections will be conducted!
Registration will begin at 9:00am with the workshop running from 9:30am-3:00pm. There is no cost to attend the session and lunch will be provided for attendees.
