ETC: Early Training in Creativity

Time and Location TBA
Facilitator: Nilea Parvin, Master Teaching Artist with VSA Texas

Workshop for early childhood educators and teaching artists. Bring your students' creativity alive! Without major uproar in the classroom.) We will create two artworks which you will be able to instruct to your students the next day. The questions we will explore:
WHEN do we create?
WHY do we create?
HOW do we create?
Come experiment with us!
Nilea Parvin, Master Teaching Artist with VSA Texas, is currently in her second year at Lucy Read Pre-Kindergarten leading an ETC program with eight teachers and their students, and has much wisdom and advice to share from her years of experience developing arts-based programs for teachers and students of all ages and abilities.
(We are working on doing this workshop on April 7 as well as an intensive for teachers with two different artworks, if any of you are interested in going tot both sessions.)
