Free for New York Teachers, Traditional Artists and Museum Educators
The Rockwell Museum is proud to partner with Local Learning Network (a national network for folk art in education) and The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes to offer Culture, Community & the Classroom, an active and culturally engaging workshop for teachers and artists in the Finger Lakes region.
Teachers earn CTLE credits and learn how culture and traditional arts can be assets in their classroom as they build inclusive learning plans with a cohort model that centers teachers’ expertise. Applicable in any K-12 subject area, the workshop brings traditional artists and educators together for active and engaging training on incorporating diverse cultural perspectives and knowledge into your classrooms and pedagogy.
Folk artists will build their portfolios and gain methods for teaching about art forms and their context to diverse students of all ages.
Community – Folk and traditional arts are found in every community. Study of traditional arts and their creators contributes not only to students’ understanding of culture and community, but also to their ability to think critically, gather and analyze evidence, and express their ideas and interpretations through personal creativity.
There are three phases to the Culture, Community & the Classroom program, and The Rockwell is excited to host Phase 3 on Saturday, November 19, 2022, at the Museum. More information about the cumulative celebration will be shared closer to the event.
