"Stevie Mack created a 'revolution' in the best sense in our district. She supported our efforts by providing structure for developing thematic units of study. Master teachers and new teachers alike are energized. Our district has since put its support behind the arts through funding for additional research and curriculum development."

SEMINAR TOPICS

New Topic! Lewis and Clark: The Art of the Expedition
Join the Bicentennial Celebration of the Lewis and Clark Expedition! Artists have found inspiration in the amazing events and accomplishments of the Lewis and Clark expedition ever since the intrepid explorers returned with tales of their adventures in the West. Help your students re-live this epic story of American history illustrated by the many works of art inspired by the expedition and make this historical event really memorable. Kitty Williams or Stevie Mack, authors of CRIZMAC's award winning Lewis and Clark VHS program Inspiring Journey, are each available to design workshops for teachers or students.

Multicultural Education
Cultural heritage and diversity are compelling concerns of educators in today's schools. Strategies for the implementation of multicultural education are discussed as participants learn how to design well-balanced lessons that reflect sensitivity and respect for diverse cultures. Art is presented as a reflection of culture and a vehicle for enriched communication. Handouts are provided.

Comprehensive Art Education
School districts across the nation have embraced the importance of providing comprehensive art education programs that engage students in art history and culture, art criticism, aesthetics, and the production of artworks. Participants are introduced to discipline-based art education and engage in activities that model successful implementation. Handouts are provided.

Art Across the Curriculum
A comprehensive art unit offers many opportunities for interdisciplinary instruction, making connections between language arts, social studies, science, and math. Classroom teachers learn how to integrate art across their curriculum. Art specialists develop the ability to broaden their curriculum to include other disciplines. Handouts are provided.
