The Barnes Foundation Teacher Institute
Over the course of two days, you will acquire the tools to help your students meet the academic standards for the arts and humanities. At the Barnes Foundation, we emphasize an inquiry-based and interdisciplinary approach to encountering art, and in this course we will focus on learning through slow-looking. Appropriate for K–12 teachers in all subject areas, the Teacher Institute is an opportunity to explore how works in our collection and the theories of Dr. Barnes can help you achieve your curricular goals.
For two hours on select Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings, we offer workshops focused on specific themes or programs of the Barnes Foundation. Led by Barnes instructors, these quarterly offerings are a opportunity for continued professional development and your own artistic education.
Artful Experience Scholars Day for Educators
Whether you are a K–12 teacher, a museum educator, an education theorist, or work in a related field, this annual one-day conference is an occasion for educators of all stripes to exchange ideas about best practices in learning through the arts. Attend a keynote address and presentations by education professionals to learn about current initiatives in the field, and use this as an opportunity for dialogue with your peers.
