Sample text

We describe ways of using poetry, proverbs, and folktales as storytelling tools of social studies, and discuss exemplars of memoir in the reading and writing workshop for children. These curricular frameworks will be interwoven with my art and craft workshop experiences, through examples of visually descriptive and culturally rich stories as provocations for studio-based and art historical activities. The basis of using traditions of storytelling within social studies inquiry, the development of individual literacy, and narrative expression in art is also often the meeting point of our cross-disciplinary discussions as friends and collaborators.

Reading the memoirs of others can help us come to know ourselves better as sometimes we will note a “me too” moment, while in other instances we may recognize differences. In teaching children to read and write memoir, we are encouraging not only selfreflection but also investigation of how other people’s stories have affected their creative development as artists and authors. Similarly, we have found that spoken storytelling can be fluid and express both the individual identity and cultural values.

In many ways, web forums such as message boards and tutorials offer alternative social and teaching spaces. Web dialogues, exchanges, and collaborations also provide participants with opportunities to reclaim and/ or revise artistic identities and conceptions of past and present craft communities. Craft (as I have seen it defined online) encompasses a range of traditionally-created works from embroideries, to quilting, to knitting, to hand-made cards, to crochet, to ceramics, and jewelry. While craft contextually extends to a variety of artistic projects and products, this essay will primarily address (1) my own experiences of digital community as a ceramicist and (2) social networking in digital craft sites my students have discussed.
