This course is a 12 hour hands-on workshop that is accredited through Loyola University, and 1 CEU credit is available for those teachers that wish it.  The class includes training in how to integrate the Monart Drawing curriculum and the Drawing thru the Alphabet program into the classroom.

All the lessons in the course are academic based.  They cover the subjects of Reading, Writing, ESL, Science, Math, Social Studies, and Geography. Even teachers who feel insecure about their drawing ability go home feeling confident to use the materials and curriculum in their classrooms.

DESCRIPTION OF CLASS: Is geared for elementary school teachers, parents, and homeschool teachers. Because the participants are often non-drawers and simply want to add a little Monart to a full curriculum of other subjects, the workshop thoroughly covers how to understand the method and use the types of projects designed for pre-school through elementary school children. The philosophy of the method and how to understand the classroom management and student needs is gone over very thoroughly and modeled by Mona. The participants receive hands-on guidance through several drawing projects; covering the academic connection to reading, ESL, science, social studies, math, and geography. Because they are often insecure about drawing they are allowed time to work on each drawing and undergo the same process that their students will be experiencing. The course covers a unit on how to make projects that can be integrated into the other subjects that teachers wish to cover. There is enough repetition to achieve the kind of success that builds confidence and everyone goes home feeling inspired to jump in and learn along with their students. Project materials and back up teaching guides are available for purchase at the class.
