Watching students' self expression and growth throughout the year is a joy. Here are just a few of the smiling faces from the first day at Washington School in Mrs. Silvers' class.
Some teachers in the North Coast Arts Integration Project are starting the first day of school with art. Ms. Brakeman at Lafayette School had her students learn about oil pastels with a self-portrait project. Teaching close observation, new art skills, a growth mindset and building relationships is a great way to start the year.
Teachers from all over the county gathered at Humboldt County Office of Education for four days of arts integration training. Each day focused on either music, theater, media arts or visual arts with dance included every day. We are happy to see these teachers heading off to the 2017-18 school year with new tools and projects to include the arts in their classrooms.
We have an exciting four days of arts integration activities in music, dance, theater, media and visual arts planned for August 14-17.
