Arts Integration Symposium Inspires Creativity

Posted on: June 28th, 2017

DSC_0017On May 21 & 22, middle- and high-school teachers from around the state (and many from Caldera Arts Partner middle schools) joined top-rate arts and environmental instructors and arts integration specialists for our annual Arts Integration Symposium. “I have been to several arts integration trainings,” commented one participant on the Symposium, “This was the best one I have been to because you didn’t tell us what the definition of arts integration. Instead, we lived arts integration over the weekend.”

 

The focus of the Symposium was on how instructors can create thriving classrooms full of student expression, analytical thinking, and diverse conversations. The group also explored how lessons can meet students’ unique needs and boost academic achievement. One teacher said, “Being taken care of in the learning process reminds me that I can better take care of my students as they move in their learning.”

 

In addition to full group activities, teachers chose two workshops to immerse in over the course of the weekend. Workshop options included: Arts and the Environment by instructors from OMSI and Pacific Northwest College of Art, Drumming the Land by Catón Lyles, Photography and Seeing Like an Animal by Julie Keefe, and The Transformative Power of Poetry by Mic Crenshaw.

 

The goals for the Symposium were for attendees to leave feeling inspired by the arts, learn new ways to use the arts and the environment in their classrooms, meet other instructors from around the state, and celebrate the unique skills that each teacher brings to their students. Caldera provides this unique training free of charge through support from the Roundhouse Foundation. See photos of this year’s Arts Integration Symposium on our Facebook page here
