Comics: A Pathway to Learning—Arts Integration Workshop

Tuesday, August 2, 2022 at 9:00 AM

Theatre 166


August 2 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Mansfield Partners in Education Team, comprised of the Renaissance Performing Arts Association, the Mansfield Art Center, and Mansfield City Schools, will host a one-day professional development workshop on arts integration for middle grades educators (most beneficial for those teaching students in grades 3-9), and administrators on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, at the Renaissance’s Theatre 166 venue. The workshop is an in-person session and will be led by teaching artist and cartoonist Jerzy Drozd. The registration fee of $125 for the workshop has been covered for all participants through the generous support of the Ohio Arts Council and Charles P. Hahn, CFP, and the Key Bank Foundation.

Teaching Artist and cartoonist Jerzy Drozd will lead teachers in two interactive sessions which appeal to a variety of learning modalities; and can reinforce one another but can also be taken as stand-alone sessions.

  • Session 1—Comics: A Pathway to Learning - Curricula through Minicomics focuses on diminishing the risk some students feel regarding drawing, including an activity designed to boost confidence in the medium through making their own publishable minicomic.
  • Session 2—Comics: A Pathway to Learning - Writing from Life with Images explores writing from life and visual storytelling techniques through experimentation and sketching.

The professional development workshop, session 1, will be presented at 9:00 AM–12:00 PM, with session 2 offered at 1:00 PM–4:00 PM. Educators may register for one, or both, sessions, with lunch included for all attendees. Registration is available at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/middle-grades-workshoppd-day-for-teachers-featuring-jerzy-drozd-tickets-388225301327. Contact hour verification for CEUs is available for participants. For more information, call 419-522-2726 ext. 212 or email [email protected].
