Designed to instruct on how art can transform students’ writing and improve literacy, this workshop explores the relationship between the visual arts and language. It will consider how K-12 visual art and language arts teachers can collaborate, using art to generate creative writing in the classroom and using literature to inspire artworks. Viewing fine art can inspire young students to discover their creative talents. Explore the interconnection of writing and the visual arts. So often excluded from the core curriculum, the visual arts can aid in the acquisition and honing of strong writing skills.
Conducted by author and art historian Alfredo Franco, this workshop will stimulate new interdisciplinary ideas and collaborations among teachers.
