Tuesday Musical and the Kennedy Center Partners in Education program are offering three free arts-integration workshops for educators in October and January.

  • The Oct. 4 workshop is “Bash the Trash” for educators in grades K-6. Led by Kennedy Center teaching artist, environmentalist and composer John Bertles, participants will build musical instruments made from recycled and reused materials and learn how to use those instruments to make connections to science and literacy.
  • The Oct. 25 workshop is “Building Reading Comprehension through Sound and Rhythm” for educators in grades 1-5. Kennedy Center teaching artist Imani Gonzalez will guide participants through a process to help their students create Soundscapes. The aim is to help students develop listening skills through collaboration, build interpretation and oral presentation skills through communication, and improve reading fluency through creativity.
  • The Jan. 24 workshop for educators in grades 2-8 is in two parts: “Cut Paper: A Pathway to Writing” and “Making it Stick: Memory Comprehension through Abstract Art.”

Open to all educators, the free workshops are 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The Lippman School, 750 White Pond Drive, Akron.
