This course is taught virtually except for session 1 on October 2, which is in person at Materials for the Arts. During the first session participants will receive their materials to be brought home as sessions 2-6 are online, both synchronous and asynchronous work.  Participants are required to attend class each week.

Course Description: Creative Infusion is an introduction to a wide range of ideas, techniques and methods used for integrating art made with reusable and recycled materials across the curriculum. This course teaches teachers curriculum integration by giving them an understanding of art techniques that they can use to teach literacy, math, science and social studies. Art becomes the tool to integrate a brave new learning community for integrating the concepts behind critical consciousness as the lens to address bias and diversity for a deeper understanding of the school and the global community. Participants will learn various strategies for differentiating instruction providing them with the tools to create and present achievable equitable projects, specifically designed to reach a wide scope of learning modalities and cultural differences that make them better educators, leaders, and artists.
