Workshops Taking Place that Day!

Living Like a Child

Experience the perspective of living through the lens of a child and in doing so; rekindle the sense of discovery and risk to explore new ideas as an adult.

Music for Learning Environments
(Art Form: Music; Academic Connection: Cognition,Emotional Intelligence, and Social-Emotional Development)

Learn how to harness the emotional and cognitive power of music. Participants will leave with a working knowledge of what kinds of music produce certain behaviors, how to use music while reading to children, and how to use music for increased focus and inner peace.

Visual Literacy and Critical Thinking
(Art Form: Visual Arts; Academic Connection: Language Arts)

Explore an adult strategy of reconstructing the story sequence of an adult picture book and what kinds of clues/evidence you have to use to look for repeating themes, patterns and sequence. Participants will then be able to take this strategy and use it with young children. Learn what "Visual Literacy" is and how it helps shape our life experiences.
