Open to all educators grades k-12.
How can we deepen our understanding of ecological issues through creating art? Throughout this week-long course, we will use art as a tool to inform our studies of the Chesapeake Bay. Teachers will discover educational resources in their local area and across the watershed. We will delve into the varied connections between art, nature, culture, and history. From the remarkable crafts that helped construct our region to the artful STEAM integrations propelling us into the future, creativity will be the theme of the week. The natural world will be studied in a way that promotes inspiration in each participant, and in turn, their students and community. The entire course will be conducted virtually and is open to all educators, no previous art training required.
