$15.00 /6 month

Presenters:  Randy Rossilli, Jr.; Mary Beth Scheerer; Dan Myers

The Fine Arts are the most flexible and accessible of all the Common Core Standards. Fine Arts emotional, symbolic and abstract content can be seamlessly applied to the DIR-FCD™ methodology. This workshop will explore the necessity of presenting high content standards and how it is critical to apply historical, social and cultural content to every lesson to engage and contribute to the student’s general knowledge. The product making piece of the curriculum, which can be challenging to students with motor planning and sensory issues, will also be addressed. Different strategies on how to support the physical making of art while still allowing for individual creativity, artistic communication and the incorporation of appropriate grade level materials will be discussed. Participants will be invited to participate in a “hands-on” fine arts lesson from the perspective of their students.
