CCP retreat: “Experimenting with Color”

March 16 - March 18

Creative Classroom Project Retreat: “Experimenting with Color”

How to bring Art Integration Into the Classroom

March 16th – 18th


Why Take This Workshop?

There are many ways on how to learn to see. When students learn to move in space,  they gain the ability to see three-dimensional space in their heads, This in turn will inspire them  to take what they do physically or with their voice and translate into a design, hypothesis, math problem or story.  Opening yourself up to new ways of discovery expands your comfort zone and increases confidence and self-esteem. If you show your students how  ideas can fit together and how they pull apart, then they are able to understand how things work and begin their creative journey with enthusiasm.

Join us for three days with artist Jeff Waring. He attended Rhode Island School of Design, graduating with a BFA in Painting in 1985. Upon graduation he traveled the US as a Domino’s Pizza sign painter, traveling cross-country while painting logos in new stores. Living out of a van, he developed small, collage paintings as a journal of place and time. This embedding of remnants and relics from travels continues to be a focus. Upon moving to Philadelphia in 1986, Waring married Jenny Quickel, began teaching at Haverford School with mentor Peter Kinney, and became active in the Highwire Artists Cooperative. In 1991 he began teaching at Westtown School and in 1997 moved to Media, Pa., where he continues to live and create. Waring draws inspiration from natural processes, earth cultures, improvisational music, outsider art and children’s art.
