We typically associate the arts with beauty, with imagination, with individual expressive creativity. What happens if we expand our understanding of the arts to include collaborative critical thinking, intellectual and emotional striving towards new knowledge, and critical examination of familiar ideas?
Join internationally acclaimed early years author, researcher and educator, Ann Pelo, for this full-day professional learning opportunity based on the new edition of her well-known book, The Language of Art: Inquiry-Based Studio Practices in Early Childhood Settings, re-released in 2016.
We’ll hear stories illustrating the ways in which children and educators can embrace the arts for inquiry. We’ll explore art media to strengthen our own competencies. And we’ll consider principles that can guide us as we move the arts to a central place in our teaching and learning.
$125 includes the workshop session, continental breakfast, lunch and a copy of Ann Pelo’s 2nd Edition of The Language of Art: Inquiry-Based Studio Practices in Early Childhood Settings or $75 for the workshop session, breakfast and lunch only.
This workshop is hosted by the Early Childhood Community Development Centre (ECCDC).
