The aim of this workshop is to increase the repertoire of teaching activities for teachers by using artwork and picture books in order to cultivate art appreciation, power of observation, thinking ability, language ability and creativity. This workshop will use the works of the artist Anno Mitsumasa as a resource. While experiencing the rich world of the artworks, through dialogue and collaboration we will explore the possibilities of creating classroom activities that value deep learning through the activation of imagination and creativity. This is a place where participants will be able to discuss and learn in small groups. We welcome teachers and also anyone who has an interest in educational activities using picture books.
