Workshops from Lori Lane ( may vary by event location )
Creativity and Critical Thinking
Effective learning involves thinking that is productive, purposeful, and intentional. Although critical thinking is at the core of most intellectual activity, it is creative thinking that involves students learning to generate and apply new ideas in specific contexts, seeing existing situations in a new way, identifying alternative explanations, and seeing or making new links that generate a positive outcome. To survive and thrive in today's culture, our students must develop both of these paths and skills. Being able to critically AND creatively approach all areas of life, will set our students apart in education, work, and relationships.
Entrepreneurship in the Arts
This is not the age of the "starving artist!" Although our generation might have been taught this, enterpreneurship and success in the arts is alive and well! If you are worried about your child being creatively inclined, you can now celebrate. Learn how marketable, arts-related skills can evolve into a successful career in the arts. Real-life examples and practical information will assist you fully equipping your child in their area of passion.
Early Childhood Music for the Non-Musical Parent
All children love music...even if their parents don't have a musical background. But, don't worry! You can add music to your child's life with some very easy steps that will not only enrich your child's life but will also teach them valuable learning skills for the future. In addition, you will have the tools to enjoy music right along with them and be able to determine whether further music instruction is warranted.
Developing a Worldview of the Arts
With so many worldview curriculums and resources out there, why do so few of them deal with a Biblical worldview and the arts. The arts are exceptionally influential on your child's worldview and learning how they work, integrate, influence, and infiltrate the mind and heart of your child is critical to equipping them to be in the world but not of the world. Non-involvement in the arts is not an option, but discernment is necessary.
Each child is created uniquely, therefore, each child as a unique way of learning. When you are able to discover the gifts of your child, a whole new way of learning comes to light. With an extensive background in music, Lori will share “How to Discover and Teach to the Individual Needs and Gifting of Your Child”.
