Dance class at Dancer’s Workshop in Jackson.

Dance and creative writing workshops launch this summer’s professional development opportunities offered by the Wyoming Arts Council.

Everyone is welcome to participate, but teachers take priority with registrations. These are opportunities to advance in their field, learn a fresh new perspective and network with their colleagues from around the state. Read about the entire summer line-up here.

The Mobius Dance Workshop takes place June 18-20 in Jackson. Amelia Terrapin of Dancer’s Workshop (and the WAC artist roster) will teach the class. Participants can earn two PTSB or UW CE Credits.

Here’s a short description: Immerse yourself in an exciting, whole-bodied approach to learning!  We will explore different ways to use movement to teach concepts like sound energy, states of matter and patterns.  This approach is designed to reach learners of all types (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) and make learning fun. This workshop is great for music, PE, and classrooms teachers looking for an active way to keep a diverse group of learners engaged. Get the Mobius registration form.

On June 22 – 27, Buffalo High School teachers Steven Heil and Kira Wages will team-teach “Issues in Printmaking: Book Arts and Creative Writing” in Buffalo. Earn three PTSB or UW CEU credits.

This course will be an intensive study on the basics of printmaking and its role and potential in the classroom, as well as an exploration of creative writing ventures easily adaptable to classroom use.  Our goal is two-fold: (1) to have each participant find new methods of creation within the classroom, and (2) that each participant will have constructed, printed, written, and stitched their own book that he or she can take home.  Many elements of “the book” will be explored – both literary and visual – and ample workshop time provided. Includes a field work day in the Big Horn mountains. Get the Issues in Teaching Printmaking form.
