The Voices from the Land project and this workshop (for educators of pre-k to 12, naturalists, artists, and other adults) is a celebration of oral and written language… of natural science, art, performance and technology. Taught by veteran teachers, participants experience all aspects of a Voices project, learning strategies for connecting children to natural landscapes… fostering a love for the natural world.
Through this workshop, participants learn how to help children work in small groups as they explore and discover a natural site, using art concepts and skills to create art from natural materials. Communication skills (oral and written) are used to create, edit and publish poetry. Digital technologies are used to document and share the art then students help layout, design and publish a full-color book of their art and poetry… or full-color posters that showcase their work. Finally, students develop performance strategies to share their work.
