While this workshop is entirely online, participants in the Teacher Institute consider pathways for equitable access to art and literacy in both face-to-face and online settings. Learn about themes of love, equity, hope, and liberation in education alongside community artists, Hawona Sullivan Janzen and Marcus Young 楊墨

Educators experience new strategies to explore themes of art, writing, and identity with the following goals:

  • Explore links between art and writing with: social/emotional needs of students, connections to communities and families, and creativity in your own teaching
  • Design a practical plan for implementing art and writing in both online and face-to-face curriculum
  • Open to teachers of all disciplines and specialties and of students in all grade levels

This workshop will be online, including synchronous meetings, individual conferences with facilitators, breakout rooms on specific topics, and interactive sessions with community artists. Participants also receive an Artful Writing classroom resource kit (including 20 reproductions and activities), practical approaches to integrate art and writing across curriculum, and time to plan their own implementation strategies.
