I will be running a workshop at the PMA on: Saturday, October 29th, 2011, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Educators revising curricula and improving teaching styles to include differentiated instruction recognize the power of art to reach students with learning differences. Not only is art a universal “language” but it is also a conduit for understanding and skill development. In this workshop, learn and model ways to discover and discuss art in the special-needs and mainstreamed classroom. Engaging activities as well as educational research will be included.

We have many perspectives and one focal point: the power of visual arts education to fulfill human potential. Lynne will be presenting A Hands-On Pre-Service Art Education Course that Teaches Children with Disabilities. This presentation shares the planning and implementation of a successful pre-service college art course that offers children with disabilities the opportunity to make, take and talk about art. Under the supervision of a certified art teacher, the college students experience teaching the children for an hour and a-half each Saturday during the semester. Through appropriate motivational materials and adaptive tools designed by the college students, the children create art, which is celebrated in a closing exhibition. The successes and challenges of the program will be discussed....
