About the workshop: 

This workshop will bring together art, writing and ecology, offering teachers creative and engaging ways to help students relate to the natural word, to observe and express their experiences through simple handmade nature journals, and to create unique constructions (inspired by artist Andy Goldsworthy) using natural materials.  

Linked to the principles of UDL, it will include a focus on students with unique learning needs as well as typical learners. This workshop is useful for classroom and art teachers of K-6, as well as older students in specialized settings. It as also a great project for out-of-school, home school and community program staff.



Please contact us if you need a partial scholarship.
This space is accessible for people in wheelchairs. If you require additional accommodations, please let us know by July 12.
