Explore how art and literacy are intrinsically linked and enrich each other. In this webinar, Cheri and Kristen read children’s artwork, decoded the drawings and paintings for meaning, and used the art as a springboard for many types of writing—descriptive, persuasive, expository, poetry, and narratives.

See how art inspires self-expression with vivid vocabulary, compelling characters, stunning scenes and dramatic plots. Become immersed in this creative process and be inspired to bring the insights of art enriching literacy into your school.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Dive deeply into insights from children’s artwork to extract meaning and intent.
  • Use images as springboards for various types of writing.
  • Explore author voice through different writer roles, transforming for different audience and presentation formats.
