Description

This workshop will take place at River Gallery School, 1 – 5 pm on Saturday, June 1st.

It will be led by VSA Vermont teaching artist Alexandra Turner and is sponsored by The Vermont Arts Council.

It is designed to illuminate the power of authentic, inclusive arts experiences. Through experimentation with art materials and adaptations, participants will develop an appreciation for the value of inclusion, build on their current knowledge, and learn tools to use in their own practice.

“Seeing by example just how it’s done was valuable: how to invite participation, offer a gentle nudge along the way, draw out a ‘quiet’ student, and provide safety in which to speak/do something new, the uses of deep listening.” ~ Vermont Professional Development participant.

Viewed from across a table, a man sits, smiling at a tower constructed of brightly colored cards in orange, black, brown, green, yellow, red, and gray. In from of him, on the table, are a variety of papers and art supplies, including a bottle of glue, pom pom, and a hole punch. Art materials are viewed on a table from up close, including a can of markers, pieces of paper, glue, and scissors. The materials surround a colorful paper figure with google eyes in the center. A pair of hands enter from the left, cutting a piece of purple paper with yellow handled scissors.Two women smile directly at the camera, standing in a conference room. The one on the right wears a white apron that has the VSA Vermont logo on it. They are both wearing crowns made of pipe cleaners and pompoms. Behind them on the wall are a variety of posters, paper, and posits.
