Continuing Education Course



Integrated Learning through Visual Art


Fuel creativity, ignite minds, and provide inspiration. Empower your students to think critically and creatively through interdisciplinary hands-on art projects that explore personal symbolism, context, and students’ own perceptions of contemporary culture. Workshop explores multiple entry points for students with different learning styles, students with English as a second language, and students with learning disabilities. Activities provide options for investigating and interpreting art at a deeper level, sparking a creative response. Discover ways to integrate the arts with core curriculum, while incorporating multiple approaches such as writing and art making. The day begins with a tour of El Segundo Museum of Art’s exhibition of the art of Michael Sistig. Sistig’s paintings and sculpture feature concepts of intuition and “memory as a process,” focusing on individual and community identity, symbolism, personal environments, and memories. Engage in rich discussions through inquiry based learning used by many museums and arts organizations nationally, designed to increase students' critical thinking, language and literacy skills. Course covers themes and questions regarding contemporary art; provides ways to enrich student learning; and builds student’s self-confidence, motivation, and self-discipline.
