Teacher Workshop: Drawn to Technology
Artpace’s upcoming Teacher Workshop on Saturday, February 25 is designed to present tools to engage students with a variety of learning styles in an assortment of disciplines, including art, English language arts, science, and history. Educators will be introduced to the work of 12.1 Window Works artist Judith Cottrell, who will focus on the incorporation of drawing processes in the classroom. She will discuss contemporary approaches to drawing that integrate various types of media and technology à la In the Window, her exhibition currently on view in our Main Avenue windows, which features a custom drawing machine.
“I want to encourage new approaches to ‘making’ a drawing with students,” explains Cottrell. Participants will have the opportunity to work with the artist and engage in an interactive gallery visit, hands-on activities and creative projects, and colleague discussions—what’s more, the workshop is worth four Professional Continuing Education (CPE) credits.
There is a $30 fee for this Teacher Workshop, which runs from 10am to 2pm and includes lunch. Space is limited, so register by February 22; call 210.212.4900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Come with your thoughts open to contemporary art and leave with innovative ideas ready for your classroom.
