Calendar / Professional Development Workshop for Educators
Wednesday January 24, 2018 at 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Mingei International Museum invites educators to a FREE professional development workshop held at Fay Elementary. This workshop is inspired by the Museum’s exhibition, ART OF THE AMERICAS – Pre-Columbian Art from Mingei’s Collection. The curriculum is geared toward 3rd-5th grade teachers, but can be easily adapted to other grade levels.
Educators will learn plaster mixing/casting, sgraffito techniques, and ways to approach storytelling as they create their own pre-Columbian inspired carved tiles to use with their students.
Educators will learn how to foster a safe creative environment as they explore art with students, while challenging them to create and design their own symbols. Educators will also learn how to apply common core practices while focusing on literacy with art projects. In addition, all will receive FREE art materials for their classroom!
