This workshop will explore creative output of various cultures to help teachers help students examine what self-expression tells us about a society, from simple drawings to complex paintings, indigenous music to jazz, and through dance and drama. Attendees will then participate in hands-on activities and experience some of the emotions unearthed. Ultimately, children can find peace and cultural literacy through the arts, and in turn, express emotions from the innermost parts of their being.
