Designed for educators interested in helping their students expand creativity and think like artists. Participants will explore processes that lead to artistic creation in Lincoln Center Education’s inquiry-based approach to arts education. Participants will have the opportunity to view live art and create art themselves in order to show them how engaging with works of art on increasingly deeper levels can complement classroom learning. Lincoln Center Teaching Artists will develop activities around the following works of art: The Lion King, a selected public art piece downtown Greenville, and a selected exhibit at Greenville County Art Museum. A ticket to see The Lion King will be included in the participant registration. Poetry-based workshops with Glenis Redmond will also be provided. Institute engages the following as workshop leaders: two Lincoln Center Education national teaching artists, and Kennedy Center national teaching artist Glenis Redmond.
