Song of America Educator Workshop

The two-day Song of America workshop (Aug. 16-17, 2018) offers an interdisciplinary exploration of American history and culture through two artistic forms: classic song (poetry set to music) and visual art (as represented by the holdings of the Fenimore Art Museum). Educators will engage in hands-on activities, participate in interactive presentations, and experience live performances of music as well as of pieces in the museum collection. The workshop will culminate in the preparation of lesson plans and activities specific to the grades and subjects of participating educators which integrate the arts with humanities topics. Ideal for K-12 Language Arts, English, Social Studies, and Performing Arts Educators. Special topics will include Native American culture, Alexander Hamilton/Early America, the Civil War, North American folk movements, and African American history of the 20th century.
