Ways of Seeing: An Introduction to Drawing for the Language Classroom
This mini workshop we look at what drawing is and drawing activities to try in language lessons.
A free mini workshop written by Emma Pratt in response to her experiences running artists in schools projects and working with visual arts, community and English language learning.
In this mini course, Emma looks at how drawing can be used in the language classroom, not only for young learners, but for all ages.
This workshop was developed after face-to-face workshops were given to teachers in Athens, Greece at the Image Conference 2018 and in Liverpool at the IATEFL annual conference and the Image Conference in Brussels in 2019.
