Picturing Writing: Fostering Literacy Through Art® is an innovative approach to teaching writing and fostering literacy designed to meet the needs of a wide range of learners. Developed by Beth Olshansky, this evidence-based model uses quality picture books and simple, captivating art techniques to teach the art of writing. Immersed in a rigorous creative process during Artists/Writers Workshop, students create their own quality picture books aligned with grade-level standards and curriculum. They learn to read like a writer and see like an artist. This August, Central Regional Education Association (CREA) and North Dakota Council on the Arts are once again teaming up to provide ND teachers with TWO Virtual Picturing Writing workshops at GREATLY REDUCED COST! (Limited number of seats available.)

  • AUGUST 1-3 (8:00am-12:00pm): For those new to the PW process - Introduction PW, Time of Day and Weather Poetry.
  • AUGUST 4-5 (8:00am-12:00pm): Looking for inspiration on how to integrate PW into other areas of the curriculum? Jump into the PW Research-Based Animal Trifold Unit.
  • TAKE BOTH for discounted fee!
  • Registration DEADLINE July 8, 2022.
