Event description

Description

The R.W. Norton Art Gallery is excited to partner with Dr. Courtney Brown, a National Writing Project consultant, and Ranger Terri Jacobson of the Red River Wildlife Refuge to provide three days of innovative ideas to help foster cross-curricular discussions and writing. By teaching students how to develop connections between what they see, hear, and say, the strategies presented in these workshops will enhance the effectiveness of students’ verbal and written communication.

“It’s not what is said, it’s how it is spoken; it’s not what you write, it’s how it is written; it’s not what’s implied, it’s what’s inferred.” -B.J. Neblett (from the essay Flash Fiction 12-2015)

Fee: $10

Summary:

Look at a sweet gum ball and what do you see? Do you see craters of a moon or the beaks of baby birds? Use a jeweler's loupe, everyday objects, simple questions, and thinking by analogy to go REALLY close-up. Help your students to think like a scientist, observe like an artist, and write like a poet. Explore this acclaimed program for creativity and critical thinking across subjects for all grades. Discover a Wonder Curriculum – The Private Eye!
