The Art of Community Celebrations: Connecting the Classroom

Wednesday, January 15, 2020


Presented By Paddy Bowman, Local Learning

For teachers of grades 3–12, college and museum education

In conjunction with the exhibit Louisiana Trail Riders, by Jeremiah Ariaz, this workshop will plumb the rich history, aesthetics, skills and intergenerational knowledge that go into community celebrations. Distinctive Acadiana celebrations abound, from intimate family events to large and small festivals and community rituals around the year. We will call upon cultural perspectives that scaffold such celebrations to explore curricular connections and inspire artmaking. Equipping young people with tools to decode, interpret, and represent the art that is around them powerfully engages them in identity, sense of place and creativeness.
