theartdept / UNESCO Dunedin City of Literature art workshops
theartdept. celebrates Dunedin’s Status as an UNESCO City of Literature with our ‘Painted Poems’ art workshops for teachers and children.
This is a free to schools initiative we offer to one class in your school in 2017. Pamela and Kerry will arrive with everything needed to work with you and your class, and we will paint, look and talk about the world of Poetry and Art, all morning 9:00-12:30 on a Tuesday. You will observe a creative and in-depth approach to painting, modelled by Kerry and Pamela with your own class, and get tips about how to extend and develop this approach to visual literacy through art education. This workshop is a professional development opportunity for you and we look forward to teaching with you in your classroom.
Your part of the deal will be to prepare the classroom for the workshop prior to our arrival, so we are all ready to go at 9:00am:
- Newspaper on tables/desks
- Chairs stacked and out of the way
- A mat area for us to talk to the class and set up our display, books, etc.
This artdept art education initiative has been made possible with the support of Dunedin City of Literature, and a Dunedin City Council Arts Grant.
