The Cummer believes in its mission to engage and inspire all through arts, gardens, and education. On Friday, January 28th we hosted a daylong session of creative renewal and inspiration for EE/SS and inclusion educators. Sponsored by The Florida Diagnostic & Learning Resource System (FDLRS/CROWN), the day took the educators through a process of arts creation and integration into classroom learning.
The morning began with a warm welcome to educators by the Cummer’s Director of Education, Susan Gallo.
From there the educators jumped right into the creative process by painting abstract paintings using adaptive art making tools.
Arts exploration occurred in the galleries through discussion,
And a little interpretive dancing!
Nature was observed in the beautiful Cummer gardens through close observation and creative data recording.
Math lessons were enhanced by the integration of art.
After a full day of art making and learning, the educators summed up the workshop through peer discussion about productive ways in which they can continue to engage and inspire their own students.
