FALL FOCUS ON FOLK ARTS IN EDUCATION
Educator Supper Club
K-12 teachers and administrators are invited to relax together and explore folk arts in education issues. We will provide the hearty soup and welcome you to bring a dish to share in the potluck. Teachers can bring examples of resources they have found useful for working with various cultural communities and with folk arts in the classroom. Space is limited: RSVP by 11/3.
Community Artists and Organizations Workshop
Community artists and organizations involved (or those who wish to be involved) in folk arts in education programs are encouraged to attend this evening workshop. We will explore some of the issues and challenges involved in bringing community-based folk and traditional arts into school settings. We will also share resources to help foster more community artists in schools. RSVP Here
