What an exciting day is planned for Creative Education Symposium 4.0!

2018 Ohio Teacher of the Year and Emmy Award winning star of the public television show “Drawing with Mr. J”, Jonathan Juravich will be the keynote speaker.  His television series connects the creation of simple drawings with Social Emotional Learning conversations.

You’ll then get to choose between three in-depth, four-hour workshops for the remainder of the day.  You’ll walk away ready to implement these strategies.

  • Jonathan Juravich-Social Emotional Learning at Your School Mr. J will share strategies to connect SEL with children’s literature, drawing and whole-school culture.   Participants will learn how to deepen conversations about awareness of self and others and making responsible decisions.  A book and art materials are included.
  • Daniel Barash-Using Shadow Puppets As an Approach to Teaching  Kennedy Center Teaching Artist and national trainer Daniel Barash has been helping teachers learn the art form of shadow puppets for over 20 years.  Shadow puppets are an easy steppingstone into theatre for children and an engaging design process both for creating the puppets and the scripts.  Participants will make a shadow puppet stage and puppets to take with them.
  • Dr. April Duncan, DSW, LCSW, RPT-S and founder of All About Play, LLC- Using Art & Play to Manage Emotions and Behavior Do you have a child who is struggling with anxiety, depression, anger? Play therapy is a hands-on way to help people learn better ways to manage their emotions and behavior. Techniques to address these issues include board games, art activities, progressive relaxation and more!  Participants will receive support materials.
