Arts Integration

Karen is available world wide to work with children and adults, implementing and teaching arts integration techniques across the curriculum.

Work with children is generally as school artist in residence, collaborating closely with  faculty to develop curriculum based plans incorporating visual art, puppetry, and creative writing for engaged, standards-based, assessable learning, including 12st Century skills of critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication.

Adult workshops are generally presented for teachers to allow experience in and  development of arts integrated options across the curriculum.

“I am (B. A.) one of the Omani teachers who attended one of the greatest workshops of yours. It was so beneficial you can’t imagine. I taught my students everything I learned.” …from workshop participant in Sultanate of Oman Teacher Training Center tour, 2016

I also offer adult workshops, often for librarians, in puppet performance, including script writing, puppet building, and performance skills.
