The NYC Arts in Education Roundtable hosted its annual Face to Face conference February 22 and 23rd at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in Queens. I presented a workshop based on and called Inkblot: Drip, Splat and Squish Your Way to Creativity.

Other participants had ideas about using the inkblots to make masks, theater sets with paper doll characters, inkblot journals–all fun things to do in the classroom, and none dependent on innate artistic skill.
The following are pictures from the workshop in the wonderful artroom at Frank Sinatra HS:
