Museum Studios & Galleries
In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn fun and dynamic ways to teach math, nature studies, art, and literacy skills all based on College and Career-Ready standards for math and language arts, and the state course of study for visual art! Classroom teachers, art teachers, and administrators will learn how to collaborate on a unit including: kinesthetic math games, drawings and paintings with a variety of techniques and materials, identifying and manipulating fractions with different numerators and denominators, using Venn diagrams, and compare and contrast writing techniques. Workshop activities will also include museum tours and studio activities that enhance understanding of these standards and suggestions for guest artists that can visit schools during the unit of study. Participants will leave with complete lesson plans, assessment materials, and finished original artwork.
