Final Unit(pdf)   Implementing Teaching Standards(pdf)


Students will learn how to cultivate creativity and unblock self-censorship through activities that engage the subconscious. Students will engage materials and processes that bring awareness to left and right hemisphere functions and Inner and Outer Theater conversations through collage, reflective journaling, group sharing, and theatre activities. Students will learn strategies to engage creative action, build conscious awareness of their thinking, and be challenged to create works of art that move them, communicating meaningful artwork that expresses the student’s voice.
