We also invite you to expand your students’ learning and your own professional development with these additional resources for educators:
Reading Art in the Early Childhood Classroom with Jamin Carter, MON, JAN 8, 4-7 PM, Promenade Hall, Overture Center – FREE: Students in grades K-2 are often emerging readers who are depending on images to provide visual cues to aid in comprehension. This workshop focuses on looking and talking about illustrations in fiction picture books before, during, and after reading to help students develop the skills of prediction, inference/drawing conclusions, sequence, and retelling stories.

Cut Paper: A Pathway to Creative Writing with Jamin Carter, TUE, JAN 9, 4-7 PM, Promenade Hall, Overture Center – FREE: The process of beginning with an idea and developing it into a story can be challenging for young authors. In this fascinating workshop, teachers explore how students can use construction paper, scissors, and glue, to create artwork that becomes the bridge between an idea and a unique, descriptive story. Participants learn to use selected elements of art such as shape, size, space, and color to connect to story components of character, setting, events, and details.
