    Over 60 educators from school districts in the Southern Tier participated in the virtual summer Culture, Community, and the Classroom workshop. Traditional art forms reflect the history, aesthetics, geography, and values of different cultures and communities and are easily incorporated across subject areas and grade levels. Faculty included eight regional folk artists, local cultural specialists, and nationally recognized faculty from Local Learning: The National Network for Folk Arts in Education. Eight educators were selected to host artists in their schools representing classical Indian dance; Native American antler and bone carving; Irish fiddle; fly fishing and tying; Mexican foodways; Afro Puerto Rican hair arts; African American storytelling and games; and Puerto Rican theater, poetry, and visual arts.
