Exploring Science with Art, Animation and Storytelling for Students, Teachers and Families
Workshops

Student work from iPad workshops at Academy Center of the Arts, Lynchburg, VA

 A life cycle is a story. Any event in science is a story. We engage children with the natural world by direct experience, stories to spark curiosity and art making. Our goal is to help children connect with the natural world and become environmental stewards. We do this by appealing to children’s interest in digital devices and animation. We offer iPad/technology workshops in schools, nature centers, art spaces and community centers. iPads are great tools for integrating science and art. They are a complete mobile production studio that can be used in a variety of venues including outdoors. We work with a suite of apps that are kid-tested and approved for sparking creativity and critical thinking. Our workshops help students and teachers draw, paint, create animations and movies. The tools are relatively easy to learn for both teachers and students and facilitate the ancient tradition of storytelling with 21st century technologies. Contact Kristin to find out more about having a workshop in your school, museum, art space or community.
