Abstract: In this workshop, diverse approaches to teacher training will be presented and discussed. Alison Aune from University of Minnesota Duluth will share an artist-based project entitled Metamorphosis of Peace. Inspired by Portuguese artist Francisco da Costa Maya, students in her art education methods courses explored Da Costa Maya's work through individual and collaborative studio creations, lesson plans, and hands-on teaching experiences with children.

The Metamorphosis of Peace workshop will include: a slide show of images documenting the project experience, a discussion of the guided inquiry method, an overview of the instructional materials used, and reflections on the course related to outreach to primary schools.
