ARC offers a nature workshop for educators

From page B3 | September 30, 2013 |

There are many ways to tell nature’s stories — through drawings, photographs, prose, music or poetry — and the American River Conservancy staff is offering an opportunity to share techniques.

On Saturday, Oct. 5 educators, teachers and administrators can join Andie Thrams and other local artists for a hands-on workshop and learn how their students can connect the arts and nature in the classroom.

The program is for K-12 teachers, educators and administrators in El Dorado County and is from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Colony in Placerville. Sign-up is due by Wednesday, Oct. 2.

There is a $5 materials fee that includes lunch.

The workshop will include multiple hands-on visual and performing art activities, including an art project with natural materials and poetry.

Teachers will leave with their own creations as well as lesson plans tied to state standards for their students. K-12 teachers with little or no art experience are invited to attend.

To sign up contact Molly Hucklebridge at molly@arconservancy.org or 530-621-1224.

Thrams (andiethrams.com) is a local visual artist who works in painting and the book arts. Her work is widely exhibited and has been honored by institutions including Sitka Center for Art and Ecology and Yosemite Renaissance.

This project is funded by the Innovations in Environmental Education Fund (IEE). The American River Conservancy is hosting a series of workshops and networking events in 2013 to build capacity for environmental education in the El Dorado County educational community.

The American River Conservancy is a non-profit community organization dedicated to preserving rivers and land in the Sierra foothills. Learn more at arconservancy.org.
