In-Person Teacher Workshop: “Read” and Write Personal Narratives with Art

Saturday, March 18, 2023, 9am – 12pm EDT
If we are made of stories, how might artwork support students as they write about their own lives?

We are the embodiment of our experiences. Drawing from SAAM’s collection of self-taught artists, peel back the layers to discover unique perspectives and experiences. First, consider how your own storytelling might be a powerful tool in your classroom. Then, plan for how your students might use narrative writing to explore the influences that have shaped them.
