by
Jim Watkins June 26, 2014


Presented at:
SCL Conference 2014

ABSTRACT:

As art educators we are teaching students to love, understand and respect the physical world. This session aims to situate art education within the larger project of becoming more fully human. By bringing the doctrine of creation into conversation with art education, this seminar aims to explore three different ways that the arts can enrich and shape a student’s relationship to the physical world.
