Visual Analysis: Teachers learn inquiry-based methods to help students look closely at art, engage in discussion, and develop critical thinking skills. In-gallery activities utilize methods such as artful thinking routines, writing, and sketching to help teachers make interdisciplinary connections between art and their curriculum.
Language Arts: Teachers learn how to use artwork to help students strengthen their literacy skills. In-gallery activities focus on creative writing, storytelling through art, or other methods that help students take on different perspectives, encourage creative thinking, curiosity and empathy.
Social Studies/History: Teachers learn methods for helping students use original works of art to understand historical context and explore new ways of viewing historical events and figures. In-gallery activities focus on using art as a primary resource and on methods that encourage flexible thinking and open-ended discussion.
Studio Art: Teachers participate in hands-on studio activities such as sketching from props or drawing from touch and learn how to help students make personal and interdisciplinary connections through art-making.
Workshops are held on weekdays or on professional
development /administrative days and typically run for two hours. Weekend accommodation for groups is considered on a case-by-case basis.
