MoMA Teacher Workshop: Art and Society
Art can be a powerful catalyst for discussing critical issues in historical and contemporary society. Giving students entry points into artworks, both through guided and individual exploration, allows them to build their own understanding as they think critically about complex issues. In this workshop, MoMA educators will demonstrate interactive strategies for exploring objects and images with students that highlight the interpretation and communication of ideas that connect with the social and cultural issues of our time. We will also model skills for incorporating the universal language of art elements and images into classroom teaching with an emphasis on encouraging critical and conceptual thinking. We will conclude with a review of MoMA resources that can aid you in lesson planning and development.

Our customized workshops introduce you to our educational approach, address themes and questions that arise in response to modern and contemporary art, and help you to think creatively about interdisciplinary links to your curriculum. Through in-gallery modeling, teachers will explore the content and context of works of art, and experience ways interactions with art support teaching and learning standards.
Workshops are designed for active K–12 teachers and/or administrators, librarians, and curriculum specialists.A minimum of 10 teachers is required. This is not a drop-in program for individual teachers.
