Learn the Art of Creative REuse
The MFTA Education Center offers high-impact workshops and classes to teachers, students and the public. Held at MFTA’s Long Island City facility and in schools across NYC, these workshops focus on the Creative REuse of everyday materials and increase student engagement by showing teachers how to integrate the arts across the curriculum. MFTA’s teaching artists model useful techniques and showcase ideas that support our Creative REuse philosophy, inspiring teachers to include more art in their schools.
UPCOMING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMING
This course is designed to enhance oral presentations in the classroom through the use of project based learning to create props, costumes and set designs made from reusable materials. Through guided art instruction, participants create hands-on art projects that integrate differentiated instruction into various learning modalities and multiple subject areas, providing critical thinking skills to enhancing rigor in the classroom.
MFTA incorporates STEAM into each project based learning workshop designed for implementation across the classroom curriculum, easily modified, participants will be able to provide a diverse level of learning techniques to reach all modalities of learners in the classroom. In this studio art course, participants will experiment with numerous techniques found in cutting, folding, shaping and molding multiple weights and sizes of paper found in the MFTA warehouse.
