On-site Professional Development 

Museum Galleries and Sculpture Garden 

Professional Development workshops are tailored to the needs of educators and administrators, K-16, in all disciplines. NCMA’s Professional Development workshops focus on how to use works of art as a resource for teaching. The workshops are object/art centered; inquiry based and are designed to engage viewers in a participatory and meaningful experience. Discussions in the galleries are facilitated by education staff and methodologies used are open-ended and multi-disciplinary. Educators will discuss the connections between what they learn during the workshop and their discipline.

Includes the following:

  • Teachers will leave with sample activities that can be used in the classroom.
  • Teachers will receive an Educator’s Resource Packet with images and a study guide.
