“The things I found most interesting and helpful about the course was me being able to be put on the spot as a student to create images using my body, expressions, and words. It enabled me to feel awkward and nervous, just as my students did during the lesson. I enjoyed meeting with my peers during the course to find common ground with my struggles. I was able to take away the new information that they provided in order for me to improve on my delivery of the lesson. I really liked my instructor because he kept the class moving without any judgement call. The more I practice the more comfortable I will become in executing my ideas to my students.”

Course Description: How can participants help students become more observant learners? Learning basic drawing skills develops students’ visualization and observation abilities, as they discover shapes, lines, colors, textures, patterns and proportions in objects and the environment around them. In this visual arts integration workshop course, participants will learn a variety of drawing techniques – Gesture Drawing, Shapes Within a Shape Drawing, and Contour Drawing – and how the visual arts techniques can be used to enhance learning in science, helping to cultivate students’ ability to accurately observe and creatively capture the world around them as well as identify and describe the relationships between interdependent parts. This course will have two face-to-face meetings and online course in between.
