Connecting Neuroscience with Music & Visual Art
Part of our Reconnecting and Rebuilding Community Through the Arts Series, this workshop includes activities and exercises that will aid students and teachers alike in coming together after the year of our lives lived online. All activities are applicable in face-to-face and online learning spaces.
In this workshop we will examine and experience three points:
- How music can help create a positive, productive classroom environment at all grade levels and even in online learning spaces
- How music is a resource for memory, recall, and concept retention
- How music helps students develop their creative, critical-thinking abilities
We’ll also bust the myth that says you have to be a trained, practicing musician to purposefully use music in the learning environment.
Come ready to engage and interact with colleagues. Please also have a few sheets of blank paper and wide-tipped markers, crayons, pastels, or other similar media available. (Scissors and tape are optional.) We’ll do simple drawing techniques as well as activities that involve the use of sound. Inner-City Arts always uses the arts as the starting point for learning. No prerequisite knowledge is needed. All workshops are interactive and hands-on, even online.
