Professional Development
+ Team Building

Creative Professional Development and Team Building that opens up new possibilities for your business
or organization.

It is no secret that by encouraging and developing imagination, creativity, innovation, critical thinking and intuition, students are better equipped to thrive in life.  There are many ways teachers can integrate art and design-thinking modalities within their classroom experiences to ensure students are fully engaged in their subject and to help students feel more successful and excited about learning.

Professional Development

Roots + Wings School of Art and Design’s Professional Development and Consulting Programs go beyond suggesting creative exercises.  We efficiently and effectively ground teachers’ learning in the principles of design-thinking and integration of art and design to curriculum through hands-on experiences.  Come experience the power of process, explore the many tools that could be added to your repertoire and engage your own creative voice.  

We work with schools from pre-k through high school, offering workshops on site at your school, at the Roots + Wings Creative Campus at 573 Fairview Road in Asheville, or virtually.  We also have consulting opportunities for more specific concerns or challenges.  

Your team can customize a workshop, or choose from our option already created (see below).  Workshops can be planned for one or two grade levels or an entire school team.  We can create our activities to relate to a specific subject or grade, or keep it broad so that all grade levels can participate and be inspired!  All of our workshops can be extended for a longer experience, but we recommend at least two hours to start.  We ask for a $25 reservation fee (non-refundable) when scheduling a workshop.

    $100 / hour (0-15 participants)    $125 / hour (16-20 participants)    $150 / hour (21-25 participants)

We can work with small or larger groups creating an experience your team will not forget!  Here are our offerings (remember we can always create a customized workshop for your team):

Engaging our Creativity through Design

Mixed Media Explorations of Self and Team
This workshop can be built for individuals of a team to have their own moments to discover new creative spirits within OR focus on collaboration and team building with a group.  Either way, participants will explore ways to expand their creating thinking process with endless possibilities.  Through the combination of collage, chalk pastel and encaustic wax, participants will create original works that explore who they are as individuals and/or as a part of your integral team.

Participants will have a large variety of collage items and material sources to choose from, but are can bring any of their own materials to be integrated into the work produced. We will reference other artists’ work, learn a variety of collage and image transfer techniques, and learn about layering and finishing a work using encaustic wax. 

This workshop is offered by Ginger Huebner, founding director of Roots + Wings School of Art and Design.  Ginger has worked in a variety of environments using this mixed media method to help people discover and explore their creative voices within.
