Because of the multi-sensory nature of the arts, memory and cognition improve when academic content is combined with color-coding, movement, rhythm, sound phrases, textures and other sensory input.

The course will focus on methods and materials for enhancing the art experience as well as flexibility, extra planning and creativity. $200 for 4 sessions $25 supply fee
