The art making process can be an ideal experience for students to develop self-awareness, self-understanding, and creative confidence. Art and classroom teachers have unique opportunities to provide individualized learning experiences. Children with identified learning differences can have an array of diverse needs that can be met: established routines, adaptive supplies, and structured creative opportunities enable students with specific learning needs to develop creative confidence and feel welcomed as a member of the creative space. The art making process supports student learning, and nurtures students' social and emotional development. Providing tools for a variety of learners creates an environment that informally invites all students and establishes the art room as a space where all of us create together, neutralizing the space and making art an activity that is open to all. The right tool in a welcoming environment allows students to find the tool that works best for her/his creative process.
This workshop, led by two seasoned arts educators, Laura Gardner, Winthrop Fine Arts/Art Education, and Winthrop Art Education alumna and registered art therapist, Alana Vest, will provide participants a hands-on learning experience and useful information that will empower them to utilize their creativity and be prepared to adapt and modify the art making process for all learners.
