Summer Workshops for Teachers!

Sum­mer is here, and I’ve cre­ated two new “Teacher Work­shops” which I’ll be pre­sent­ing in July at Palace Art in Capi­tola, Cal­i­for­nia.  If you hap­pen to live on the Cen­tral Coast, I hope you can join us!  (Each work­shop will be offered twice!) 

Join us for:
 Teach Kids Art:
Haiku Tun­nel Books

Tues. July 12, 9am-11am OR Sat. July 23, 9am-11am • $20 fee
(Fee includes printed les­son plan and all materials.)
In this work­shop you will…
• use a post­card as your inspi­ra­tion to write a haiku
• illus­trate your haiku with a fun, 3D “tun­nel book”
• leave with a sam­ple you’ll be proud of, ready to teach this project to your own students!
Also, join us for:
Teach Kids Art:
Inspired by the Art of Haiti
Sat. July 16, 9am-noon OR Tues. July 26, 9am-noon • $30 fee*

In this work­shop you will…
• cre­ate three projects inspired by the metal art, col­lage, and col­or­ful paint­ings of Haiti
• leave with sam­ples and complete les­son plans, pre­pared to teach these projects to your own students!

    OOH I wish I wasn’t on the east coast! I’d LOVE a tun­nel books work­shop! Sounds like great fun; good luck!

    Have you ever thought of try­ing to get credit for your classes? I did this with my online courses for art teach­ers and peo­ple really appre­ci­ated that. I con­tacted a pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment branch of a uni­ver­sity to get started. Just an idea!

    Good idea, Jes­sica! I’ll look into that!

    These work­shops look like such fun. I know, though, that the very best part will be the teach­ers enjoy­ing each oth­ers’ company.

    I love the tun­nel books! This is such a great idea for arts inte­gra­tion in the class­room. Thanks for shar­ing! If I wasn’t out here in Mary­land, I’d attend. :)

    Do you plan to put your tun­nel book work­shop in your store?

      Yes, Jes­sica… it’s been on my list! I have a pdf I’m just fin­ish­ing up right now, then I’ll do the tun­nel books next, since you asked! :-)
