The museum’s Connie Towson Ford Educators Academy is inviting teachers from all grade levels and disciplines to learn at the Igniting Student Success workshop, August 3 to 6.
Educators will come away with the skills to integrate art into their lesson plans while also focusing on literacy, math, science, and social studies. A variety of professionals will teach art-centered interdisciplinary approaches to help your classroom succeed.
Each year, college students from across the country set out to find internships. This summer, 26 undergraduate and several graduate interns are working throughout the museum to gain experience in their respective fields. (And, hopefully, have fun in the process!)
Alicia Hudson Garr, internship coordinator and associate director of interpretation, says this summer the interns are especially diverse, which reflects the nature of the museum’s program.
Ever wondered what happens in an Art for Parent and Child class? We visited a recent summer session to give an up-close view of what transpires when you combine more than 10 toddlers and their caring adults with the creative classroom of one of the nation's top art museums. Mix in two experienced teachers, and you have an equation that equals time well spent on a Wednesday or Saturday morning.
The entire community is invited to join in the celebration of the museum’s newest gallery openings with our Going Global Family Day on Sunday, June 27, from 12:30 to 4 p.m. The afternoon is filled with free activities, including opportunities to get up close and personal with works of art from our collections, hear stories inspired by the objects in the new galleries, and see mask-making demonstrations and performances featuring our visiting artists from Africa.
Teachers! Learn how you can reach out to your students using art and story telling.
