Teacher Workshop: Impressionism and Fashion

July 9, 2013
Ryan Education Center
$150; 15 CPDUs, 1 Lane Credit, 1 Graduate Credit ($100)

Three-Day Workshop: July 9, 10, 11

This summer, the Art Institute of Chicago is host to the internationally acclaimed exhibition, Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity, which traces the growth of the modern fashion industry amidst the social and economic changes in the late 19th century in France. This three-day workshop will introduce participating teachers to strategies for making connections between art, fashion, and the social, political, and economic context of this highly charged moment of history. The program will kick off with a visit to the exhibition and use a collaborative approach to translate our experiences into exciting, interdisciplinary curriculum to use in the classroom. The workshop will also feature a studio component exploring connections among fashion, identity, gender representation, and consumption to help frame the workshop’s content within contemporary culture.

Register today!

In addition to 15 CPDUs and 1 Lane Credit, 1 Graduate Credit will be available for an additional $100.

Reservations are required for this program. For additional Teacher Workshops please visit the Teacher Programs Calendar.
