What in the world can you learn from just looking at pictures? PCA is excited to present Look At That! Critical Thinking + Art = Knowledge Retention, an arts education workshop on Thursday, May 10th from 4:30pm to 7:00pm at Second Street Gallery. This information-packed workshop will provide resources for constructing new understandings of our cultural, social, and political history by discovering clues in works of art. Attendees can expect a combination of entertaining stories, discussion, and hands-on exercises.
Educators will receive a CD of images courtesy of the VMFA, posters, lesson plans to take back to their classroom, and will be eligible for re-certification points.
Co-sponsored by Second Street Gallery and the Office of Statewide Partnerships of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, this workshop is intended for teachers, educators, and all those interested in ART!
Jeffrey Allison, Paul Mellon Collection Educator at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, will lead this interactive presentation.
FREE for PCA and Second Street Gallery members, $5 for non-members.
Registration is required. To RSVP, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by May 8th.
