Professional Development

Professional Development workshops are tailored to the needs of each group. Administrators and educators in all fields, K-16, can explore how to use the Museum and the works of art as a resource for teaching. The workshops are object/art centered, inquiry based and are designed to engage viewers in a participatory and meaningful experience. Discussions in the galleries are facilitated by education staff and methodologies used are based on open ended questions and are trans-disciplinary. Educators will discuss the connections between what they learn during the workshop and their discipline and teachers will leave with sample activities that can later be used in the classroom. Teachers receive an Educator's Resource Packet with images and a Study Guide. Workshops can be also offered at school districts and can be customized to follow districts Conference Day themes.

Fee: Groups of 25 teachers $600 for half day and $1,200 for full day.
