Event description

Description

Children undergo rapid physical and psychological changes from birth through adolescence. These developments include cognitive, social-emotional, speech and language, and fine and gross motor skills. In order to offer instruction that is high quality from an educational and artistic perspective, organizations and educators must be grounded in effective teaching practices which include stages of child development and degree of agency for students at each age.

Participants will:

  • Learn about arts discipline-specific and age-appropriate pedagogical approaches and practices
  • Understand the developmental characteristics and artistic developments of Pre-K through High School students
  • Analyze artistic content to identify prerequisite skills and knowledge, and assess student readiness

Light food will be provided.
