Illinois Art Station is happy to announce that we have partnered with Illinois State University’s Cross Cultural Teaching and Learning course for Fall Family Programming! This course, taught by Dr. Miranda Lin, focuses on the cultural factors that affect learning and teaching. A key component of this class is a service learning project where students work with a local nonprofit organization. In partnering with IAS, students helped design programs that combined their course material with IAS’s focus on visual arts engagement. Working closely with IAS’s Education Coordinator, Joey Hatch, students developed three unique art making experiences for the whole family to enjoy together!
“Providing meaningful arts experiences that families can participate in together is important to us,” said Laura Jaster, IAS Executive Director. “I am excited to see families creating art together and connecting with one another at IAS. Thanks go out to Dr. Lin’s students and IAS’s education team who worked to make fall family programming possible!”
Each program is centered around a fun family theme that provides opportunities for every family member to express their creativity. Offered on Sundays in November from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. these programs are recommended for families with children ages 3 to 10 and participation is capped at 25 artists per session.
Program details and registration information are below.
