Fall Teacher Workshop


Lead Instructor: Mari Atkinson

The Latino community which is the largest minority group in the state is diverse and enjoys a rich history in the Pacific Northwest, along with strong cultural ties to Mexico and the nations of Central, South America and the Caribbean. This ten-hour workshop is designed for the generalist teacher and explores the spiritual and cultural complexity of Latin American art forms and guides teachers through projects that help students learn basic art skills used in making this diverse cultural art. Aligned with our spring 2017 exhibit of Latino Art, specific objectives will focus on integrating Latino Art into the classroom through art-infused connections with history, language arts, math and social studies. Standards-based activities will increase cross-cultural awareness, as well as an understanding of how art is used to pass on to future generations a people's history, values, and traditions. Projects, for Kindergarten through 8th grade, will be presented by experienced artists and learning specialists. Assessment strategies will be discussed and all activities are designed to be class-time efficient.

Dates & Times: Friday November 4, 5-8:30pm & Saturday November 5, 9am-5pm

Fee: $75
