Take a Viewing & Doing Workshop


Workshops will be held in October, November, February, and March. Dates will be announced in September 2019.


Free for educators


All professional development sessions are held at the JBFC Media Arts Lab, 405 Manville Rd., Pleasantville, NY.

Join a community of teachers committed to supporting students’ creative expression and critical thinking through the process of viewing and creating media. This hands-on, interactive workshop uses an Image, Sound, and Story project to inspire and equip you to teach using a language that comes naturally to your students: image, sound, and story.

Get to know the JBFC’s free online resources to help your students develop their capacity as storytellers and communicators. You’ll also learn implementation strategies from classroom teachers who are effectively integrating these media arts strategies into English Language Arts and Literacy instruction. Workshops are grade specific and offered for elementary, middle, and high school educators.
