This is a great idea

Seminar Teaches Core Content Through Kentucky Crafts

The Kentucky Arts Council will present “Crafts and Beyond,” a professional development seminar for teachers, in conjunction with the state-sponsored craft fair, Kentucky Crafted: The Market. Participating teachers will have an opportunity to interact with more than 200 Kentucky writers, craftspeople, artists, musicians, and farmers and will learn about art and writing activities to use in the classroom as well as grant resources for bringing artists and guest speakers into schools. The seminar will help teachers develop exciting ways to teach creative writing, language arts, social studies, arts and humanities, vocational agriculture, and practical living while connecting these areas of the curriculum to the real world of Kentucky’s artistic traditions.

The seminar will take place on Friday, March 3 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm (ET) at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville. The fee is $50 per teacher. Please register early, as space is limited. Registration will close on February 18 or when filled. Visit the KAC web site to register online, or call Charla Reed at 1-888-KYCRAFT, ext. 4815. For more information, contact Judy Sizemore at (606) 364-5831 or circuit@prtcnet.org.
