Fine Arts - Interdisciplinary Project Based Learning

Online Meeting 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.


The concepts and content of the visual arts apply to almost every area in life. As schools work creatively this school year to address curricular needs within a new context, this workshop will explore how interdisciplinarity connections can be made to the art standards. Participants will learn and work with a project based learning framework to understand how it can be used to bring art to life in any content area. Whether you are an elementary teacher wondering how art can be incorporated into your content area lessons, a secondary art teacher thinking about how to bridge your content within content area classrooms, or any teacher interested in interdisciplinary collaboration, this workshop will have practical tools, examples, and processes for you to take back into your teaching practice.

*The workshop will be open to all K-12 teachers.
