Workshops Explore Visual Literacy for Effective Writing on Feb. 8 and 15

Come join us on Wed., February 8 and 15, 2012 from 4:15 pm to 7:00 pm as we examine paintings and other objects from the collections of The Cleveland Museum of Art to develop descriptive, and comparison / contrast paragraphs. Focusing on American art and using art terminology, we’ll be guided through the process of writing about masterworks in order to build these skills with middle and high school students. Though grades 5—12 are targeted in the workshop, these integrated and exciting lessons are appropriate for a wide range of student ability and skill level, from remedial to advanced writers.
