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. There will be four themes of hands-on practice: spinning, weaving, printing, and batik. Throughout the course participants will learn about the environmental impact of fabric and investigate ways to creatively reuse their own materials. Participants will learn various strategies for differentiating instruction in order to create and present achievable projects for a wide scope of learners. Participants will utilize journaling, research and the sharing of best practices to develop lesson plans from course material for a variety of learning styles and levels that are relevant to their instructional setting and relate to student interest, heritage and language proficiency.
