What Does Your Body Look Like When You Move?


Wednesday, August 11, 2021
10:30am – 12:00 pm


Do your students have trouble depicting bodies in motion in their drawings? Join Lynn Chou, Manager of Youth & School Programs from the Frye for an artwork discussion and a hands-on activity while making connections with other educators! Through close-looking and open-ended discussion, participants will first spend time with an artwork from the exhibition Black Refractions: Highlights from The Studio Museum in Harlem. Together, we will identify how artwork discussion builds 21st century skills before exploring ways to support students in portraying movement and posture in their drawings. The workshop is suitable for anyone who works with students in elementary school, especially grades 1 through 3. Classroom teachers, teaching artists, parent docent volunteers, childcare providers, and administrators are all welcome. Workshop participants will be eligible for two (2) Washington State clock hours. Space is limited. Registration is required.

Live captioning will be available for this program.
