• Workshop (45 minutes, including questions): A workshop is a session in which there is active audience participation via the experiencing and discussing of visual arts creation tasks provided by the presenter.• Talk (30 minutes, including questions): A talk tells the delegates something about teaching language through visual arts creation.
