"Creativity in Motion”
Adam C. Sharp, Spokane Community College
Start your creative juices flowing through poetry, writing and movement. Participants will be actively involved in the development of their creative process. They will develop creativity and character skills applicable in the arts and everyday life.
"Breaking Patterns: Rediscovering the Creativity You Never Lost”
Julian Schrenzel, Improv Alive, and Roosevelt HS Students
This workshop will demonstrate a number of improvisation games, invite participants to play along, and offer suggestions and discussion on the many potential applications of improvisation to education.
"Integrating the Arts and Creativity Across the Curriculum”
Presented by Paul Fouhy, Auburn Mountainview HS
This discussion of the role of the arts and creativity in an age of high-stakes testing will include historical context, practical examples, and research evidence. The focus will be on incorporating the Arts across the curriculum to develop creative and critical thinking in all subject areas. Participants will share their own ideas for working together to find creative solutions which benefit student learning.
"Breathing STEAM:The Little Elementary School that COULD”
Eve Hammond, Hawthorne Elementary
In an interactive and engaging workshop, teachers and teaching artists will collaborate on what Arts Integration could look like in a Visual and Dramatic classroom. The focus will be on learning by doing, not just by talking. Come learn and interact with the first Seattle-area elementary school to fully integrate the ARTS into other core curriculum while still teaching "Art for Art’s Sake.”
"Dynamic Games for Learning”
Ruth McRee, Playworks
This workshop will give educators an experience of how drama is used to teach 5th-graders about various groups’ points of view during the American Revolution. Through role-play, pantomime, movement, and dialogue, participants will be guided to explore issues, solve problems, make deep personal connections, and expand understanding, as they discover the relevance of history to their lives.
"Arts Education IS Special Education”
Jennifer Martin, Kelly Hui, Andrew Ryder
Our session will share personal experiences and classroom strategies which acknowledge and capitalize on the natural connections between arts education and special education, particularly with significantly impacted populations. Participants will take away arts skills for special ed and special ed skills for arts education. Specific attention will be paid to the uses of music, movement (including BrainDance), and dramatizing stories in the elementary special education classroom.
