As educators, we know and experience the power of photography and storytelling in our classrooms. For our students, photography can be a tool for self-reflection or a tool for exploration. It can be a medium to tell their own narrative or to interrogate the world around them. It can be a practice for learning leadership, collaboration, and project management. With all these possibilities and so many ways to approach them, the Fall 2021 Educator Lab offers a space for peer teaching/learning exchange.
In this Educator Lab, you will hear from many arts educators who are exhibiting student work at the festival, as well as enjoy an artist-led tour of Photoville. Come away with new photo ideas and approaches to bring back to your classroom, or tools and reflection to deepen your practice. Join us for happy hour at the end of the event!
Photoville Educator Labs are professional development workshops for educators to be inspired, connect and collaborate on ways to bring visual storytelling into the classroom. The program is free and open to educators of all subjects and of all ages, but the content will be focused on middle school and high school art teachers working in the DOE and in community programs.
