Arts Integration Workshop: Creating Characters—Shape/Size/Line/Color

Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at 4:30 PM

Virtual Event


November 2 @ 4:30 pm 7:30 pm

The Kennedy Center Partners in Education Mansfield Team, comprised of the Renaissance Performing Arts Association, the Mansfield Art Center, and Mansfield City Schools, will host a professional development workshop on arts integration for elementary and intermediate educators, and administrators on Tuesday, November 2, 2021. The workshop is an in-person session, and will be led by teaching artist and cartoonist Jerzy Drozd. The registration fee for the workshop has been covered for all participants through the generous support of the Ohio Arts Council and Charles P. Hahn, CFP, of Cleveland Financial Group.

Teaching artist Jerzy Drozd will lead his workshop entitled, “Creating Characters: Shape/Size/Line/Color,” for teachers serving students in grades K-8. Learn how a cartoonist uses drawings, panel size, and crazy sound effects to immerse their readers in the story! Cartoonist Jerzy Drozd will lead teachers in an interactive workshop exploring some of the fundamental comics storytelling principles, and connecting those principles to ELA standards and content. The workshop appeals to a variety of learning modalities, while exploring how shape, size, line, and color are used to convey meaning in comics.

The professional development workshop will be presented from 4:30 until 7:30 PM, and dinner is included.  The location for the workshop will be the Ballroom of the 2nd floor of the Renaissance Theatre, located at 138 Park Avenue West in Mansfield, Ohio. Registration is available at https://jerzydrozd2021.eventbrite.com. Contact hour verification for CEUs are available for participants. For more information, call 419-522-2726 ext. 252 or email maddie@mansfieldtickets.com.
