Learn how to engage students through warm-ups, games, activities and lessons that use works of art to enhance observational skills, vocabulary and imagination. Workshop participants will use poetry, expository writing, persuasive writing, and narrative writing to respond to works of art and will use the creation of art to visualize and analyze text.
