  • Explore and engage with arts-based and materials and processes
  • Develop an arts-based lesson that utilizes arts and material practices as vehicles for PK-5 students’ engagement and understanding

Drawing and Painting in STEAM Journals

Saturday, February 25, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Have you ever wondered about the A in STEAM? In this workshop, we will explore the arts as vehicles for learning in integrative STEAM projects. To be clear, this is not a project about the arts but one that uses the arts as tools to deeply investigate and explore topics in the sciences or mathematics in ways that are meaningful for young children. We will design classroom field journals in which students may 1) engage in observation and representation of the natural world and 2) make learning visible.


Arts, Education, and Activism: Collaborative Murals

Saturday, March 25, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Murals can be a collaborative, community-building activity that brings the education community together to talk critically about important topics and provides an avenue for creative expression. The goal of this workshop is to brainstorm a collaborative mural that centers the Black Lives Matter in Schools movement. Participants will gain experience with mural design using abstract and representational imagery and text.  We will explore techniques for brainstorming ideas collaboratively, using the elements of art and/or symbols to convey meaning, planning dynamic compositions, considering scale and proportion, and developing the larger mural.
