Book SmART: Heart to Heart: New Poems Inspired by Twentieth-Century American Art

Free teacher workshop

FREE

Teachers will use the Amon Carter’s collection to discover innovative ways to incorporate both poetry and original works of American art into their curriculum. Look at and discuss artworks from a variety of media, learn visual literacy strategies, and explore ways to infuse language arts curriculum with images that make poetry units come to life.

Participants will receive two CPE hours in: English/Language Arts: All Levels, Fine Arts—Art: All Levels, and Instructional Techniques: All Levels

Elementary and middle school librarians and art, gifted and talented, language arts, and reading teachers from classroom and homeschool settings, as well as preservice teachers, are encouraged to attend, although others may benefit and are welcome to register.

This workshop is limited to twenty-five participants; preregistration is required. All participants will receive a copy of Heart to Heart: New Poems Inspired by Twentieth-Century American Art.
