Art Educators Professional Development Workshop

Wednesday, Oct 11, 2023 | 9 AM-3 PM 

The Albany Museum of Art recognizes the benefits of arts education in every setting. Social and emotional support and specialized professional development for art teachers should involve opportunities to collaborate and share ideas with each other.

Southwest Georgia art educators teaching kindergarten through college will come together for a unique professional development opportunity at the Albany Museum of Art from 9 am-3 pm on Wednesday, Oct 11, 2023 for a chance to meet with and learn from their peers, network, and grow a support system.

Research shows that professional development leads to better instruction and improved student learning when it connects to the curriculum materials that teachers use.

Participants will take part in discussions and hands-on workshops; discover new effective lesson plans, tips and tricks, and be inspired with innovative ideas to take back to their classrooms. Additionally, participants will receive a tour of the five current winter exhibitions, engage in gallery discussion, and practice Visual Thinking Strategies, an inquiry-based teaching strategy for all grade levels.

COST: $30 per educator. Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided.
