Evening for Educators: Rural Avant-Garde
In conjunction with our current exhibition Rural Avant-Garde, we invite Western North Carolina K–12 visual arts teachers to participate in a casual and collaborative professional-development workshop. This workshop will include an in-gallery talk with the exhibition curator and experimental, chance-based artmaking with museum educators in our studio. Evening for Educators is an opportunity to network with other art educators, share and learn as both teacher and student, and reconnect with your own creative process.
Visual arts teachers/coordinators are invited to register to participate in this professional development at the link above. CEU credits are available. Lesson plan included.
- Professional development takes place indoors in the Museum’s John & Robyn Horn Education Center.
- Masks and social distancing are required.
Teacher Professional Development
The Museum is committed to providing engaging and educational experiences for pre-K–12 teachers in WNC schools. Our professional-development opportunities include curriculum-based and exhibition-inspired workshops led by Museum educators and/or special guests that provide teachers with tools to facilitate object-based learning. These workshops are interactive, hands-on, and incorporate artmaking. Come excited to learn together with your colleagues, and leave inspired with ideas to incorporate into your classroom and personal practice!
