Summer Teacher Institute, Washington, D.C.

National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.NMWA Summer Teacher Institute

One of the highlights of my teaching year is always the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ Summer Institute for D.C. area teachers. I’ve been working with the Institute for several years now, and always enjoy interacting with the teachers, knowing that the information I’m giving them will eventually migrate back into their classrooms.

This year there were about 20 participants in the week-long session, and I did a short lesson on simple cut-and-fold pop-ups along with another lesson on constructing a landscape book (a simplified variation on the tunnel book). The exciting results are documented in the photos.
