Language barriers and cultural differences can make learning more
challenging for nonnative English speakers. In this workshop, we will
discuss specific difficulties teachers and students face, and outline
strategies for bridging communication gaps, and incorporating the awareness
of differences in language and culture into studio art classes.
Leader: Nichole Van Beek is an artist and has taught ESL
and art classes since 2002. She currently teaches in the Intensive English
Program at Pratt Institute and drawing at Suffolk County Community College.
Free and open to the public, however, advance registration required.
Depending on availability, tickets may be obtained on-site in the
