Connecting Pattern Educator Workshops
August 23 @ 9:00 am - August 26 @ 5:00 pm
Islamic Art Revival Series is excited to announce Connecting Pattern 2018, TEKS and Common Core aligned 2-day workshops for educators of all levels and backgrounds (K-12, Community College, and University). Taught by a highly sought-after international team of artists, these workshops will explore deeper structures and connecting patterns across cultures and histories, for use across the curriculum.
Connecting Pattern is a practical introduction to the principles of Islamic Pattern, which will explore the connections between geometry and nature, art, architecture, mathematics, and science. The workshops will be led by Richard Henry and Adam Williamson, faculty of the acclaimed university, The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts.
After attending the workshop, participating teachers and administrators will be able to incorporate their learning into the curriculum to help the students develop a solid grounding in the language of symmetry, introduce them to the principles of free-hand biomorphic design (also known as Arabesque), and learn to integrate these more fluid designs with the geometric pattern.
There are two dates for the 2-day intensive workshops:
- The first session runs August 23-24, 9AM-5PM both days.
- The second session runs August 25-26, 9AM-5PM both days.
