Identity Expression Through the Arts

Artist: Kathryn Sclavi

Type: Professional Learning

Program Availability: In-Person, Virtual


Educators will engage with expressive art making experiences that support them to investigate aspects of their identity that are perhaps unseen or underrepresented. Through haiku, creative movement, tableaux, abstract visual art, and/or voice, educators will use creative modalities to learn alternatives to writing and speaking. Educators will engage with opportunities to share and respond to artistic creations. This is a perfect workshop for people who wish to have more creative communication tools at the ready!

  • Learn ways to express identity through multi-disciplinary art forms.
