MAKE IT! And teach the Common Core Standards

MFTA’s July P credit courses teach methods to integrate art-making and the Common Core Standards across all subjects. This summer we’re offering three week-long courses during the month of July.

It’s not too late to sign up for our first course, which starts next Monday: “Creative Infusion” is an introduction to the ‘Art of Reuse.’ Participants in this course will learn to make games, puppets, costumes, theater sets and mosaics–all from items they are probably throwing away. We are teaching inexpensive and often free ways to engage your students through art-making. You’ll have a blast and earn P credits in the process.

We offer three, week-long courses: “Creative Infusion,” “Raw Fibers” and “Paper.” While these courses are designed for teachers, they are open to anyone interested in creative reuse and making art; follow the link above and look for information on auditing a course as a non-credit participant.
