Teacher Professional Development Workshop: Teaching for Social Justice
Monday, January 21, 2019
10 am–12 pm
Meet in the Education Studios, 1st Floor
This workshop is now full.
Join us for a day of action in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, with two professional development workshops for educators to reflect on the intersection of art and racial justice and enliven their teaching practices through art engagement.
In the morning workshop, Marit Dewhurst, Director of Art Education and Associate Professor of Art and Museum Education at City College of New York (CUNY), leads an interactive exploration of the intersection of art, identity, and social justice pedagogy using the reflections in her most recent book, Teachers Bridging Difference: Exploring Identity with Art. Discuss Dewhurst’s findings and experiment with practices that use art to build relationships with students.
The day of action continues with our afternoon workshop, Art as Activism.
