Summer Institute, National Museum of Women in the Arts

Summer Institute, National Museum of Women in the ArtsOne of my favorite teaching sessions every year is the Summer Institute for teachers held at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. The week-long session for elementary and secondary school teachers introduces them to the VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies) technique of art study and encourages participating educators to incorporate creative projects into their standard school curriculum. I spent Wednesday morning covering pop-up and landscape book construction. Every teacher ended up with a pile of pop-up models. Several of the teachers are shown here with their landscape books. Next year, in addition to the basic Summer Institute, an advanced session will be offered to those who have completed the first session.Teacher 1, Summer Institute 2014 Teacher 2, Summer Institute 2014 Teacher participant, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Summer Institute  Teacher participant, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Summer Institute Teacher 7, Summer Institute 2014 Teacher participant, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Summer InstituteTeacher 6, Summer Institute 2014 Teacher participant, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Summer Institute
