Discovery Through Drawing: Integrating Science and Art
Date: July 8, 2013 - July 10, 2013
Event Type: Conference or Workshop
Content Area: Professional Development
Grade Level(s): Pre-K through 4,5 through 8
Presenter: Jean Masseau
Description of Training:
This course is designed for K-8 teachers who want to integrate visual and technical art skills into their curriculum. Teachers will work through a series of exercises starting with strategies for creating a successful drawing progressing through increasingly complex assignments. Techniques such as looking at the space around objects, (positive/negative space), and using the elements and principles of design will enhance observation skills. We will explore graphite pencil, colored pencil, pastels and ink with a focus on the surrounding coastline and marine subjects.
Drawing is a hands-on way to nurture students' flexible thinking, risk-taking and problem solving. Teachers will experience how drawing serves as a method of scientific communication, recording data, and documenting observations. As an alternate mode of expression, drawing can be a valuable learning tool for a range of learning styles, engaging non-traditional as well as traditional learners. Teachers will gain confidence in their own drawing skills, allowing them to translate their experience to their students' needs.
