PAST: ARTS EDUCATION: "ARTS 101: Professional Development Workshop" for Educators at the Corcoran THURS, Jan 24th from 9:00am - 12:30pm, $10, $8 or Free, Advance RSVP Required
Educators explore the Corcoran Gallery's outstanding collection, specifically, works that are included in the Arts 101(middle school program) resource packet and teaching posters, which are given to all participating teachers. Themes spanning 400 years of American cultural life--identity, community, freedom, and oppression--are discussed in the galleries. The ideas and concerns presented in these works are used to make interdisciplinary curricular connections and engage students in making their own comparisons. If you can't make this one, the next one will be on Thursday, March 14th at 9:00am.
