Course Description:

This course is designed for teachers who are interested in offering their students a deeper investigation of STEAM through project-based learning by using reusable materials and technology. Through guided art and technology instruction, participants create advanced hands-on art projects that integrate differentiated instruction into various learning modalities and multiple subject areas. The sessions are broken down into five days of both synchronous and asynchronous learning, hands-on art making, problem solving, inquiry, observation and documentation.

In addition, each participant will need to  independently purchase or borrow materials listed on your course Supply List.
