The Arts Education in Maryland Schools Alliance is thrilled to be hosting the first Maryland Arts Integration Network (MAIN) event of 2017, "The Arts and MakerSpaces." The purpose of this event is to explore how MakerSpaces enhance arts integrated instruction and learning in schools. The event will include a hands-on experience in the MakerSpace "Fab Lab" at City Neighbors and a discussion of best practices on how maker education enhances curriculum in arts integration and arts education. Participants will leave this event with tools and inspiration on how to incorporate the MakerSpace activities into curriculum through hands-on guidance by Justin Eames, FabLab Director at City Neighbors, and Matt Barinholtz from FutureMakers. In the afternoon, there will be guided tours of Open Works Baltimore to learn about the exciting opportunities for students, educators, and makers of all ages.
