This workshop component, rooted in brain science, specializes in connecting the arts to metaphorical thinking, sensory observation, abstraction and more! Genein Letford has successfully lectured on arts integration at the university level and is pleased to bring her specialized program to your educators. Let’s get our students moving, painting, playing, creating and learning thought the arts!

Attendees will:
• Learn the basic elements of the creative arts and how to communicate through those elements

• Acquiring strategies to expand their creative thinking and the creative thinking of their students with the creative arts

• Integrating the creative arts in the curriculum for any grade and subject
