Last week, teachers, parents, artists and educators came together to participate in three, “hands-on” workshops that led them through a creative “bootcamp” focused on visual arts and theatrical activities.

Dr. Laurie Stowell from the School of Education was just was one of several talented instructors hosting the creative workshops and her presentations were focused on writing, visual literacy and book illustrations. She facilitated a book-making project that not only taught participants how to design and construct a children’s book but she also taught how to read a book to a child by pointing out the details of the illustrations and understanding messages that most wouldn’t notice.

Other activities were theatrical where participants drafted impromptu storytelling techniques, interpreted poetry and then acted them out. Teachers tapped into colors and emotions, explored music, media and dance and all while learning about Visual and Performing Art Standards and the Arts and Common Core.
