Three-Day Teacher Workshop: Art Museum as Laboratory—The Integration of Art and Science

July 13, 2015
Ryan Education Center, Studio C
$75; 15 CPDUs

Three-Day Workshop: July 13, 14, 15

In the disciplines of both art and science, practitioners act on their curiosity by identifying an inquiry and taking steps to discover or express the unknown. In this way, artists and scientists share the skills of close observation, reasoning and imagining, as well as creative problem solving. In this three-day workshop, teachers will use the museum as a laboratory to explore the ways artists and scientists engage their curiosity in order to innovate, and they will consider how to stimulate this same thinking and practice in students. Middle school science and art teachers are encouraged to register and participate together.

Participating teachers will receive a copy of a new curriculum resource focused on the intersection of art and science. They will also learn about a new student tour experience, Art + Science, which will be offered in the 2015-2016 school year.

Register here.
