Curriculum Focused Programs
Physics,Geometry, Art and Fun come together in this program of hands-on learning. Students study the Physics and History of flight (aeronautics) and create up to three kites that really fly.
Students create beautiful glass tile mosaics while reinforcing their knowledge of the principles of the four types of symmetry.
During slavery Dave Drake was both a potter and a poet, wriiting verse on the beautiful jugs and urns he created in South Carolina. Students in this workshop write poetry and and inscibe it on the bowls they make from clay. A meaningful Social Studies program for Black History Month or any time during the year.
Students work with George Woideck to analyse geometric tessellations and then appy their knowledge to making tesssellations in the visually delightful style of artist M. C. Escher.
These workshops are an example of what can occur in the classroom when combining visual art with another subject, enhancing the learning of both. They were created using the techniques that I learned as a fellow in a Kennedy Center (Washington DC) two year arts-in-education initiative. They are also available in Professional Development Workshop form.
