Tuesday, 10/18 (Pre K-2nd): Lines and Shapes: Integrating Visual Art and Geometry

Lines and shapes, concepts central to pre K-2nd grade mathematical understanding, are also building blocks of visual art. In this workshop, explore how students can construct and demonstrate their understanding of geometry through visual art. Teachers learn the basic vocabulary for identifying and describing various types of lines and 2-D shapes in works of art and create abstract drawings and cut-paper compositions that allow all types of learners to be creative and successful.

Wednesday, 10/19 (2nd-8th): Cut Paper: A Pathway to Creative Writing

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.

Thursday, 10/20 (3rd-8th): Think Like A Scientist: Developing Science Practices Through Visual Art

In this workshop, explore ways to help students read visual art to develop their use of several science practices, such as careful observation, analyzing and interpreting data, and developing an explanation based on evidence. Learn a process that takes you from STEM to STEAM!

Jamin Carter's AXIS sessions are supported, in part, by a grant from the Mary Freeman Wisdom Foundation.
