Draw A Story and Write A Picture Workshop June 16-20

May 30, 1997

Art enthusiasts can explore how language arts and visual arts complement and reinforce each other in the teaching of basic skills through a week-long workshop from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. June 16-20 in Room 161 of the Lewis Art Building at Baylor University.

Using the Crayola Dream-Makers Resource Guide, Tales to Tell, and discipline-based art education concepts, participants will use methods of art criticism and aesthetic questioning to formulate stories and prepare a book of original stories or poems and illustrations.

Participants will be shown how to use commercial story books for classroom activities and learn how to use a museum setting for research, story telling, writing activities and illustration. Participants will receive a copy of Tales to Tell and a complete curriculum unit for immediate classroom use.

The workshop is open to elementary and middle school teachers, parents and college education students. The cost is $125 per participant. The deadline for registration is Monday, June 9.

The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Mary Ruth Smith, assistant professor of art education and visual arts specialist at Baylor; Mary Claire Brothers, tour director at The Art Center of Waco; and Nancy Barcus, language arts specialist and project director at Hines Montessori School in Waco Independent School District.

The workshop is one of many events leading to the opening of the Crayola Dream-Makers Exhibition to be held at The Art Center in spring 1998.
