Three teachers awarded Learning Links grants to further arts education

Written by 

Three Jackson County teachers — Jennifer Dall at Smokey Mountain Elementary, Kansas Heiskell at the HUB, and Gayle Woody at Smoky Mountain High School — were awarded a Learning Links grant this year to support art workshops in the schools.

Metalworker William Rogers taught the workshops, which showed students how to handwork metal. During the series of three workshops, students as young as ten years old hammered metal into whimsical shapes and then suspended those shapes along a wire framework to create a kinetic sculpture.

Learning Links projects involve students in “hands-on” projects to support innovative, imaginative and creative approaches to teaching.
