WORKSHOP 1: No More Art in the Dark! How to Teach Art History without Lecture
Turn on the lights! This 4- or 8-hour workshop introduces effective, engaging practices for teaching art history that don’t involve lecturing in front of a sleepy, darkened classroom. Workshop participants will learn and try out methods to make art history come alive through personalized observation, hands-on activities, discussion, and more. Resources shared in this workshop are designed for immediate use in diverse classrooms.
Both the 4-hour and 8-hour workshops offer teaching practices and tool kits for teaching art history in diverse settings. The 8-hour workshops are designed with more time for delving into how to teach specific topics in art history as well as to create and practice innovative lessons as a group.

This jam-packed 8-hour workshop provides a lively yet practical overview of the basics of both Western and Non- Western art history. Through engaging workshop activities, teachers will learn art history in ways that both inspire and equip them to become more creative about the art they are studying. This passion will translate to your district’s students, positively impacting their lives for years to come as they make connections across skill sets and curricula.
