Embodying shapes helps us understand our world. In this practical workshop, we will use round, angular and twisted shapes as building blocks for explorations in expression, creation, collaboration, analysis, and story-telling.

Learning Goals:

  • Increase student engagement and deepen student learning through interdisciplinary lessons
  • Replicate movement-based activities.
  • Utilize creative movement practices in the classroom to teach shapes, visual literacy skills, and to create original stories.
