Adult Program + Children/Family Program + Educator Workshop

This weeklong workshop will provide kids ages 8 to 12 years old with a strong foundation of artistic skills including color understanding, line variety, and what makes a strong composition. Weather permitting the group will work outside and make visits to the museum and local galleries. Each session will end with a positive critique of the day’s work, which parents are invited to attend. Students should come with a bagged lunch.
 
Art instructor Kathie Gass will guide students ages 7 to 11 through a watercolor painting project. The class will make boats then create worlds around these boats. Also, each day a different visiting artist will join the class for lunch. A healthy snack will be provided, and participants should also plan on bringing a lunch along with their creativity.
 
Instructor Kathleen Gass studied drawing and fiber arts at the State University of New York and has been an art educator for the past 20 years. Trelawney O’Brien will be a studio assistant for this class.

The Lincoln Center International Educator Workshop is for educators and arts administrators who are interested in learning about imaginative teaching and learning through aesthetic education. Participants will experience performances and visual artworks, guided by art-making explorations that have been designed by Institute Teaching Artists.

This week’s gallery experience will explore how we can use artwork to advance literary goals in the classroom.  Educators will engage in abridged gallery activities with Education Project Manager, Andrea Curtis.  Educators will participate in each activity and reflect on ways to incorporate these strategies in their own classroom.  No previous experience needed and all materials will be provided.  All educators are welcome to attend. 
 
This workshop will begin with an overview of various programs you can use to showcase student work with a broad audience.  The second half of the afternoon gives educators a chance to try out some of these tools for themselves.  If you are curious about iMove, Blurb Books, YouTube, altered digital photography this may be the workshop for you.  You can preview some of the material we will cover at ccskindergarten.wikispaces.com/eCreate.
 
Materials:  Please bring your school laptop (Mac) and any digital student work you would like to workshop with (i.e. student photos, videos, scanned artwork, text files, auto-files, etc.).       
 
Children ages 5 to 8 years old are invited to hang out with art instructor Trelawney O’Brien and other creative kids during the April school breaks at the Farnsworth’s Gamble Education Center.
