CCP retreat: “Plant – Paper – Structure”

April 27 - April 29

 

Creative Classroom Project Retreat:
STEAM Transformation: Plant- Paper-Structure

How to bring Art Integration Into the Classroom

April 27th – 29th


Why Take This Workshop?

There are many ways on how to learn to see. When students learn to transition from a 2-dimensional plane to a 3-dimensional structure, they gain the ability to see three-dimensional space in their heads, This in turn will inspire them  to take what they create physically  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.
