Learn how to facilitate open-ended conversations around works of art, and how to apply this methodology to teaching literacy and critical-thinking skills as well as social studies and science content. This four-day workshop stems from research conducted by the Guggenheim Museum, which concludes that discussing and creating art can lead to improvements in reading comprehension.

Tuition is $350 for four days and includes resource materials for the classroom.

Teachers of grades 2-12 in all subject areas are welcome to apply.

Enrollment is limited to 20 participants.
