Virtual Teacher Workshop: Art-Making as Reflection
Tuesday, July 13, and Wednesday, July 14, 11 am–12:30 pm
Join us for a two-day professional development workshop for teachers that examines how artists use exploratory writing, collage, and archival research to connect their lived experiences to history. Museum educators Stacey Kahn and ray ferreira draw on their interdisciplinary backgrounds as artists and writers to engage with works of art in two of our special exhibitions—Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And and The Slipstream: Reflection, Resilience, and Resistance in the Art of Our Time—through discussion, art-making, and creative writing. Develop strategies for cross-disciplinary and multimodal teaching and leverage creative expression to reflect on the fears, joys, and possibilities of contemporary life.
