Comments from past DeltaARTS Aesthetic Education Educator Workshops participants:

  • “Guided questioning is my new friend.”
    • Minta Lynch, Library Media Specialist, Carroll Smith Elementary
  • “As a person, my highlight was creating a piece of artwork that I was proud of, and that I can share with others. As an educator, I now have a better understanding of how my students feel when they are learning a skill for the first time.”
    • Tess Jackson, First Grade Teacher, Maddux Elementary
  • “I am now equipped to ask better questions that guide my students into curiosity and higher thinking.”
    • Debbie Sellers, Music Teacher, L.R. Jackson Elementary
  • “The quality of the instruction was well planned. It provided the knowledge needed for me to be successful in utilizing what I can do with students. The opportunity to learn from shared interests and experiences of other participants just added to the next level of learning about life and living.”
