Greenacres is dedicated to bringing classroom lessons to life through our hands-on educational programs. This July, the Greenacres staff and members of the Greenacres Artists Guild are teaming up with nationally recognized children’s book illustrators Barbara McClintock, Matt Phelan and Ralph Fletcher, the University of Findlay’s Mazza Museum, and Kent State University staff to provide professional development opportunities for art and creative writing educators. This two-day event will deepen the participants’ knowledge and understanding of the arts, specifically visual imagery and visual literacy in classroom and visual arts teachers in order to build artistic and visual literacy skills in children.
Speaker schedule is subject to change without notice.
Stay tuned for follow up workshops after the July conference!
