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.

MATERIALS: COVID -19 Update: This year, Materials for the Arts faced an unusual challenge of turning our in-person class into an online class.

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