Art is EVERYWHERE: A Cross-curricular Workshop for DCS Teachers

Art is EVERYWHERE: A Cross-curricular Workshop

Are you struggling with art integration across the curriculum? Do you need some fresh ideas for how to incorporate a little art into your science, math, and reading lesson plans? Do you love hands on projects and collaborative learning with your peers? Then this workshop is for YOU!

Join WMA Art Educators Amanda Holcomb and Brook McGinnis as they lead you through a three-hour exploration of art integration. You will first be walked through the basics of integrating art into other subject matter and how that relates back to Alabama State Standards. Next you will be led through a lesson plan where you will be creating your own work of art. Lastly, you will work together in grade or subject groups to design your own cross-curricular art lesson plan. There will be breakout sessions where you will be able to learn different mediums and techniques, such as how to make air dry clay, salt painting, and encaustic painting. Come ready to learn and create!

Open to all Dothan City Schools teachers.

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.

Throughout the year, WMA will host “Meet the Educator” days where parents and their children can come to the classroom to meet the instructor before beginning classes and camps. 2019’s schedule is as follows: January 30 from 4pm-6pm, May 29 from 4pm-6pm, and August 28 from 4pm-6pm.

Refund Policy

The Wiregrass Museum of Art may cancel any class with insufficient enrollment; students will be notified and given a full refund. If a student withdraws at least 1 week before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for the full cost of the class. If a student withdraws 24 hours before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for half the cost of the class. There are no refunds after the start date of class, and membership fees are nonrefundable. Students are not enrolled until complete payment is received.
