This informal share session will be a hands-on demonstration of various mixed media art projects used to engage high school students in classic World and American literature in unexpected and inventive ways. The canon of traditional High School literature, when taught with non-traditional arts integration - engages learners of all levels, facilitates discussion, and sparks student investment in reading through creative self-expression. Art projects include: real egg shell tableaux depicting symbolism, motifs in The Great Gatsby, wooden trading cards for characters in The Crucible, hand-made books with secret origami pockets. All projects will be using 'green school' recycled materials.
Lunch is included.
