Early Arts Learning

Professional Development Workshops for

Early Childhood Educators and Teaching Artists

Hawai`i Wolf Trap and Hawai`i Arts Alliance invite your participation in:

 

Virtual Early Arts Learning Modules In Music, Drama and Dance 

with Wolf Trap Master Teaching Artists

 

The arts are a natural way for young children to learn. Wolf Trap's hands-on teaching strategies for early childhood educators help children experience the joy of the arts while learning essential skills, such as critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and collaboration.

 

Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, a program of Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, is a nationally recognized leader in early childhood arts-integrated learning and instruction. Wolf Trap Institute is scaled nationally, with 23 affiliated organizations and numerous partners in 25 states that deliver arts-integrated education experiences to 60,000 teachers, parents/caregivers, and students annually.

About the Early Arts Learning Modules

Participants have the option of registering for the Music, Drama and Dance modules or selecting one or two of them. We are offering a discounted fee (until March 12) for registering in all three modules. Enrollment is limited to 30 participants per module.

Each Learning Module is designed to be a stand-alone experience and is comprised of three 1-hour sessions.

 

Session 1: Asynchronous

Participants will be provided resources focused on the arts and early education and will be asked to complete short exercises and reflections prior to the second session. The cumulative time for this asynchronous learning is 1 hour.

 

Session 2: Online

The second session is a 1-hour guided experience in Music, Drama or Dance. Participants will work with a Wolf Trap Master Teaching Artist to break down an art form into its fundamental elements, and apply those elements to strategies for learning in all domains in virtual, hybrid and in-person Early Childhood spaces.

 

Session 3: Online

This "Let's Practice" session will engage participants in practicing those art strategies for learning with the guidance of veteran Hawai`i teaching artists. Participants will work together in small groups.

The second and third session will take place via Zoom. Participants will receive the links upon registration. Resources for the asynchronous learning will be sent one week in advance of the session with the Wolf Trap Artist.
