Educator Workshop: Engaging with Art in the Classroom
September 3, 2022, 9:30am - 12:30 PM

Join Brooke Wessel, School and Teacher Programs Coordinator at The Ringling, for a hands-on workshop on engaging with art in the classroom! Brooke will share Visual Thinking Strategies, a curriculum approach that promotes open-mindedness, collaboration, and learning from looking. In this workshop, educators will learn about the curriculum approach and have the opportunity to practice as a participant and facilitator with artwork from The Ringling collection. This workshop is kid-friendly, so feel free to bring your kiddos along!

All participating teachers will receive 3 hours of continuing education credit, and a complimentary breakfast will be provided. 

If you are unable to attend this in-person program, please be sure to check out our online resources. Video lectures, gallery talks, and conversations with the curators are available on our YouTube channel. Please visit https://www.youtube.com/c/TheRingling/playlists for more information and a full list of virtual programs.
