Creating Collaborative Art Programs for Children, Families, and Caregivers Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, January 22, 2020, 3:30pm Eastern/2:30 Central/1:30 Mountain/12:30 Pacific

The ability to run a children’s art program is an important skill for library employees. Collaborative programs engage children physically, cognitively, and creatively and provide an opportunity for them to bond with one another and their caregivers. This workshop provides the theoretical and practical information needed to develop programs where participants work and create art together. 

Children’s librarian Katherine Hickey and art educator Heather White equip participants with the knowledge, ideas, skills, and methodological theories necessary to successfully create collaborative art projects with children that can be displayed in the library. Participants will learn how guiding principles inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach can elevate the quality of a collaborative art project.
 

After participating in this workshop, you will:

  • Understand the Reggio Emilia Approach and its relevance to libraries.
  • Be equipped with language, empirically based research, and arguments to justify collaborative art projects in the library.
  • Have 6 unique, open-ended, and process-oriented art projects to lead with children.
