Course Description: This studio class will take a single product, fabric, and work out the historical, economic, scientific, social and mathematical properties that are inherent in its use and production through hands-on art making. Each session will focus on methods for curriculum integration including: math, science, social studies and literacy. Educators will learn teaching practices that provide for the needs of all student learners by creating brave learning spaces to explore alternative materials that represent and affirm student identities for independent thinking and problem solving. Participants create a series of hands-on art projects that reflect the individual’s unique cultural experiences.

*To receive P-Credits, participants must be registered with MFTA and on the ASPDP website. ASPDP registration opens on January 29th.

*Note: We are excited to announce that we have funding to waive the MFTA fee ($240) for 10 participants. To be eligible, you must be a DOE teacher at a Title 1 school. This opportunity is first-come, first-served.
*Update on Scholarships 1/3/24: We have reached the limit on funding, and there are no more scholarships available at this time.
