Description: 

What do a paper tiger, a cardboard fish and an egg carton turtle have in common? They are all ways to assess student’s social-emotional and cognitive development. During this two-day workshop, artist Karen O. Brown will explore how visual arts can enhance your early childhood classroom. The training will deepen your students’ understanding of animals and the Earth by using everyday recyclable materials to create animals and their habitats.

Participants are asked to wear comfortable clothes and shoes as well as to bring at least three of the following items:

  • cereal, cookie, cracker or tea boxes;
  • flat cardboard;
  • cardboard boxes; and
  • egg cartons.

This course addresses the following age band(s):
