National Museum of Women in the Arts, Summer Institute

Teacher workshop at National Museum of Women in the Arts

A portion of downtown Washington, D.C., was not focused on the budget crisis this week, but rather on creativity in the classroom. Twenty-two area teachers participated in the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ Summer Institute, learning how to integrate arts into standard curricula. I gave a half-day session on pop-ups and landscape books, and discussed how these formats could be integrated into subjects such as biology, history, and literature. The teachers work with classes from pre-school to college, and many were educators who did not have an arts background, but everyone walked away with wonderful examples to develop further in their classrooms.
