Teacher Workshop: Building the Craft of Connecting

4:00 p.m. 7:00 p.m. End Time
4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. | Burchfield Penney Art Center

Art objects made with craft media are seductive. The textures, forms, and three-dimensional qualities are enticing, attractive, and inviting. These objects are more than their material; the artworks go beyond how the artist made this.
 
Stories connect artworks. The narrative can originate from a visitors background experience or the artists point-of-view. Either way, the story connects artwork in ways that ripen into a bigger picture. When visiting museums, visitors create these stories and at times not realizing they are linking images with words, life experience, and learned information with narrative while engaging with an exhibition.
 
Building the Craft of Connecting is a workshop for all educators including the English, foreign language, and art teacher. Participants will build with their hands and with their writing tools.
 
The Burchfield Penney Art Center (BPAC) provides verification that you spent three hours on professional development activities, which may satisfy your district's requirements.
