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.

Registration is $30 for one workshop; $50 for both. Members receive 10% off. To receive the Member code, email membership@brooklynmuseum.org with your name and Member ID. Not a Member? Join today!
