Teacher Workshops

Teacher workshops focus on ways to use contemporary art in your classroom while meeting state and national learning standards. Workshop topics include color theory, aesthetics, collaboration, creativity, and hands-on practices like silkscreen printing. These engaging, participatory workshops help you return to your classroom energized and inspired. Participants may receive Act 48 credit hours.
