6. Creativity As A Door to The Self--As a Place to Form and Transform Knowledge

This workshop highlights the ways that art can support comprehension of complex texts, enrich student expression, and develop students’ sense of self. Participants will explore identity through the lens of double- and mestiza-consciousness, and consider the ways that art can be employed to build student confidence and strengthen classroom community.
