Creative Educator Workshop Series #4: What We Share
The Outside the Lens Arts Integration Workshops explore the language of visual and media art through our project design process, supporting teachers with the skills to integrate media arts into their core curriculum. Workshops will address English Language Arts and Science standards alongside VAPA and NCA standards. By leveraging arts education resources and expertise through this professional development opportunity, teachers can provide more meaningful arts experiences for students.
During these participatory workshops we will explore the concepts of visual and media arts within a classroom setting, and how we can apply these skills to various curriculum to amplify students’ voices, both as critical consumers and conscious creators of media. Participants will walk away with an arts integrated project and lesson plan to use with students.
Workshop #4: What We Share
What similarities do we share?
Students pair up and ask their partner a series of questions to determine more about the other, finding something specific they have in common. While learning about object and still life photography, students document their similarities through photography and share more of the meaning behind their work through a written piece.
