UPCOMING CREATIVE EDUCATORS WORKSHOPS
Are you interested in utilizing digital media to engage your students and enhance their learning experience? Would you like to learn more about using cameras to build your students' social-emotional and 21st century skill sets?
Join 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.
