Virtual Teacher Workshop: Artist as Environmentalist

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

4–6 pm

Online

How do artists act as leaders in environmental activism? In this virtual professional development workshop for teachers, join other educators to discuss how the arts can reflect, critique, and reimagine the environments we occupy. First, study two works by Chinese artists in our collection and discuss how artists use landscape imagery to comment on society’s relationship to the natural world. Then, make art with artist Erina Alejo and curator Lian Ladia, whose collaborative practices explore the intersection of urban development, environmental change, and community displacement. Through group discussion and art-making geared toward virtual learning, participants will develop teaching strategies to help students critically engage with the natural and built environments around them. 

Registration is $25. A Zoom link will be sent by email. Members receive 10% off. Not a Member? Join today!
