    Saturday, November 21, 2020
    9:00 am - 12:00 pm

    Add to Calendar 11/21/2020 9:00 AM 04/24/2020 12:00 PM America/New_York Culture, Community & the Classroom: Phase 3

    Culture, Community, and the Classroom 2019 in LeRoy, NY.

    Free and open to all educators in the region

    The Rockwell Museum is proud to partner with Local Learning Network (a national network for folk art in education) and The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes to offer Culture, Community & the Classroom, an active and culturally engaging workshop for teachers and artists in the Finger Lakes region. 

    Teachers earn CTLE credits and will build personal plans for the inclusion of culture–especially traditions and art forms meaningful locally–in their classrooms. Folk artists will learn methods to convey the significance of their cultural knowledge and create a plan to share key details about their art and its context to diverse audiences.

    There are three phases to the Culture, Community & the Classroom program, and The Rockwell is excited to host Phase 3 on Saturday, November 21, 2020, at the Museum. More details about Phase 2 will be shared in the coming months. 

    Participating folk artists and teachers share their classroom teaching and cultural learning experience with the community. The event is free and open to all educators in the region. Attendees will have an opportunity to gain insight into the process of working with artists to integrate cultural knowledge and art traditions into grade-level curriculum.
