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, social studies. Participants will learn various strategies for differentiating instruction providing them with the tools to create and present achievable equitable projects for reaching a wide scope of learning modalities that make them better educators, leaders, and artists. Sessions include: Art of Reuse-an introduction to materials and problem solving; Games and Game boards-developing new games and replicating standard games for all subjects; Bookmaking- the creation of book structures that integrate all fields of study; Mosaics-creating patterns and design inspired by cultural and historical influences; Wind Chimes and Mobiles-creating kinetic sculptures, using geometry, problem solving and reasoning and the sound of science to understand how to create desired sound sculpture; Musical Instruments-designing a variety of percussion instruments out of everyday objects and Theatre Arts-using an historical timeline and a study of world culture to create hats, masks, puppets and costumes to be used to create a literary response.
Emphasis will be placed on creating sustainable artwork: that which leaves no negative impact on the environment. Participants will develop two lesson plans for various subject areas, learning styles and ability levels relevant to their own classroom. Participants will utilize daily rubric self-assessment, journaling, instructor assessment, research and the sharing of best practices to acquire new knowledge and techniques that they will use in creating lesson plans from course material for reaching the variety of learning styles and levels that are relevant to their own instructional setting. Participants will receive a course pack of documents outlining vocabulary and how-to instructions for the arts techniques learned..
