Educator Workshop

The Lincoln Center International Educator Workshop is for educators and arts administrators who are interested in learning about imaginative teaching and learning through aesthetic education. Participants will experience performances and visual artworks, guided by art-making explorations that have been designed by Institute Teaching Artists.

Featured Exhibit: Four in Maine: Site-Specific
On view through December 2010
 
The Farnsworth Art Museum’s Curatorial staff will give a walking tour of the new exhibition, Four in Maine: Site Specific, for teachers interested in learning more about this exhibition showcasing the work of four Maine artists. The tour will be followed by a catered reception in the museum library.
 
Educators are invited to explore art together, to express their ideas and creativity, and consider the connections between the arts and the rest of the curriculum in a day-long workshop focused on the museum’s exhibition, Elegantly Attired: Victorian Apparel and Accessories Found in Coastal Maine. Exploring clothing and accessories including day and evening attire, nightgowns, undergarments, hats and shoes, fans, and jewelry dating from 1850 to 1900, this workshop will feature a gallery tour with the exhibit curator, a talk by an expert in fashion design, and opportunities for participating in activities, discussion and reflection to help integrate this exhibit into classroom practice. CEUs available.

These professional development gatherings introduce teachers of all grade levels and disciplines to the museum’s collection and exhibitions, and include short lectures, gallery walkthroughs and classroom arts integration tips. Time in the galleries will be followed by a reception featuring wine and hearty hors d’oeuvres, offering networking opportunities with other teachers.
