Cultivating Awareness and Empathy Through Art-Making
Monday, August 1, 2022; form 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
@ The Gateway Center Collinsville, IL
Registration: 8:30-9 a.m.
Workshop: 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Visual art explorations can drive the development of critical social emotional skills including awareness and empathy. Join Jonathan Juravich as we explore resources and creative hands-on approaches that bring these critical skills to the center of an art curriculum. Attendees will take time to reflect on their current practices, dream up new possibilities, and we will most certainly do some art-making while we are at it.
Jonathan Juravich is the art teacher at Liberty Tree Elementary School with the Olentangy Local Schools outside of Columbus, Ohio. At Liberty Tree, he serves as a leader of the school's Culture and Environment. He is the 2018 Ohio Teacher of the Year and was one of four finalists for 2018 National Teacher of the Year. His personal and professional focus is on the importance of Social and Emotional Learning in our daily lives. This is the topic of his presentations, including his TED Talk “How Do We Teach Empathy,” his limited series podcast "The Art of SEL," and his Emmy award winning digital drawing program "Drawing with Mr. J."
