Thursday, October 19

Gallery Talk - 5:00 pm
Curriculum Connections Workshop - 6:00 pm

Free for all Teachers, School Administrators, and School Board Members
Registration is required.
Act 48 Credits are available through PSEA. Sponsored by PSEA, Pennsylvania State Education Association and CAPS, the Council for the Advancement of Public Schools.


Through this program, participants will learn about the works in the exhibit that are from various school collections in Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties. The program will highlight the historical background of the collections and their artists, their connections to historical movements in education, reasons for their development, their usage in the curriculum, and how teachers and administrators worked with artists of the era. The paintings and archival materials on display illustrate how these collections can relate to today's application to the study of regional art history, art appreciation, and current reforms in arts education. Following the gallery talk, teachers will participate in a workshop which will discuss how teachers can utilize the work in their teaching and curriculum along with creating connections to STEAM, language arts, history, social studies and much more.
