Many schools have been forced to eliminate art from the student experience; others still offer art, but as a stand-alone class. In this talk and workshop, Dintersmith shows the essential importance of
Art and creativity in developing science and math proficiency,
STEM skills in pursuing the arts, and
The role of hands-on learning (or CTE) for every student.
Workshop Option: The speaker takes the audience through several exercises that highlight the power of integrating these disciplines, and the missed opportunity when they are isolated or ignored.
