Educators Connecting Through The Arts

April 1, 2023 @ 9:30 am 2:30 pm

Saturday, April 1, 9:30 a.m.– 2:30 p.m. at the
Center for Maine Contemporary Art and the Farnsworth Art Museum

The Farnsworth Art Museum is partnering with the Center for Maine Contemporary Art to host the 2023 professional development open to all Maine educators, with support from the Maine Arts Education Association (MAEA). Museum education staff at both institutions will guide participants through a variety of activities and ideas for incorporating art into your classrooms. We’ll also take a close look at themes, dialogues, and curiosities across our current exhibitions. Imagine, explore, and create as a community of educators of all ages during this one-day workshop.
