Join us for our Spring Symposium at Educational Alliance and home to Teaching Beyond the Square’s Materials Center, as we delve into various processes of converting materials and discovering ideas for creative experiences in classrooms. The Symposium will begin with an open house at Educational Alliance Preschool, giving participants to opportunity to explore the classrooms, hear from teachers, and learn more about curriculum at this school which serves children ages one through four. Afterwards, we will gather together to cut, tear, tie, weave, wrap, hang, twist, knit, combine, and sew fabric. Using a variety of fabrics and tools, we will work to answer the question of how textiles, a material that is discarded in overwhelming quantities in New York City, can be an opportunity for learning and development in classrooms. We will reflect on this question together during breakout discussion groups. Join us after the Symposium for refreshments in our Materials Center to continue the conversation.
