Thank you! to everyone who came out to PAEA and sat in on our session
STEM to STEAM: Framing the Future.
For many of us Integrating areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math into our art curriculum comes naturally and we don’t even recognize the big picture. And when we allow students to learn about ALL of these things, AT ONCE, along with ART… whoa!!!!
Though STEAM students engage in inquiry based learning and art making. They solve problems that relate to the real world, and they develop skills in creativity, innovation, and collaboration.
21st Century learning skills, Anyone???

where I type ideas, websites, and research into the table below.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE AN EXPERT!
YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS!
Art is everywhere, and without it our homes and spaces would be very dull.
I will be presenting on the same topic at Kutztown’s 2012 Art Education Conference:
FRAMING THE FUTURE.
I will be sharing my Kaleidoscope lesson in more detail and in a more hands on way and
hopefully more STEAM lessons in progress.
