June 49:00am-4:00pm“Puppetry: Fabrication and Use of Puppetry in the Classroom”Prof. Jax VadneyPuppetry is an art that can be incorporated into the classroom to inspire young students to engage in the topics being taught. During this one day workshop, teachers will create several easy form puppets and learn how to manipulate them. We will focus on creating 3 quick puppets, how to use them, and how to incorporate them into the classroom as storytelling devices, learning tools, and engagement practices. Please note, this Professional Development is geared more for teachers of grades K-5, but may be beneficial for teachers in grades 6-12. No pre-requisites, although crafting experience and a love for play is encouraged.

Tammie Clark
Sponsored by the AAEA
Many of us are experiencing the 30 minute…well let’s be real, 25 minute class if we’re realistic…art time. It can be done!!! You won’t create a lot of art during the year, but you can still give a quality art lesson with proper planning and pacing. Join us for a two-hour session where you will create a hands-on-lesson in three 25 minute sessions and I will show you lessons my students created last year in the last 3o minute of our workshop. Geared for the elementary traveling art teacher, but anyone is welcome to join us. We will end up with a really cool DuBuffet sculpture made of index cards.

Fee: FREE to Alabama Art Education Association members (must provide member number). $5.00 for non-members. Square reader will be available to accept card pay.

June 51:30pm-3:30pmHow to Organize a Traveling Art Cart Tammie Clark
Sponsored by the AAEA
If you are a traveling teacher and are frustrated with your cart, come and join in on this mini workshop. I will show you successful ways I have organized my cart. I will set up several carts for you to photograph, from an ideal three shelf beauty to an AV cart; show storage containers I’ve used; storing and drying student art; how I set up a paint cart. They key is in some good old fashion organization and “stack-ability”. We can problem solve your situations or just vent a little. You CAN have a quality art program from a cart…I promise. Come and get a little support or GIVE a little support! We will even make a little art!!

Fee: FREE to Alabama Art Education Association members (must provide member number). $5.00 fee for non-members. Square reader will be available to accept card pay.
