TEACHERS: There’s still time to sign up for “PAPER: From Pulp to Fiction,” a week-long course offered for P credit at Materials for the Arts. The course starts Monday, July 18, at 9:30 am. As with all of our P credit courses, “Paper” focuses on linking the Common Core Standards and making art.
The course is HANDS-ON: Art projects covered during the week include paper making, pen and ink, block prints, stenciling, silkscreen and collage–all made with materials you’re throwing away or the FREE materials available to all registered DOE schools in the MFTA warehouse. Participants will tap into their own creativity to make prototypes for their classrooms and learn how both like-minded colleagues and our master teaching artists have linked these art projects to the Common Core.
