On Saturday, January 24 Art21 is partnering with the Museum of Modern Art to offer a full day professional development workshops titled Teaching with Objects and Film: Focus on Contemporary Art. The workshop introduces participants to a variety of strategies for engaging students with contemporary art through the study of objects in the museum’s galleries and the use of Art21 multimedia resources. This workshop will model ways to prepare for and extend museum visits with your students in the classroom through video, web, and print resources. Sessions in the museum’s galleries will focus on ways to engage students with looking at, discussing, and interpreting works of contemporary art. Workshop activities will emphasize inquiry-based learning, thematic approaches to teaching, and ways to integrate the artists’ process as described in their own words.
The workshop fee of $45 includes a copy of the Season Four Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century DVD and accompanying Educators’ Guide, MoMA Educator Guides, and an Educator’s pass that allows teachers free admission to the museum until September 2009.
