Support for educational programs at the Michael C. Carlos Museum comes from the David R. Clare & Margaret C. Clare Foundation, an anonymous donor, and the Marguerite Colville Ingram Fund.
Teachers tell us that the workshops and PLU courses at the Carlos Museum are unique. They value these programs because of the engaging content and the opportunity to work in small groups with scholars and artists who are not only experts in their areas, but masterful and generous instructors. Join us this academic year for a rich mix of workshops that range from explorations in the galleries with Emory faculty and curators, to hands-on art experiences with guest artists.
Workshops will be held from 5-7 pm and will meet in the Tate Room on the Plaza Level. Unless otherwise noted the fee is $8 for museum members and $12 for non-members. To register, contact Clare Fitzgerald at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-727-2363.
Fall Semester 2016 Workshops
Coiling Culture: Basketry Art of Native North America
Thursday, October 20, 5-7 pm
Tate Room, Plaza Level
As much math as art, Native American basketry is sophisticated and complex. Dr. Laura Wingfield, assistant curator of art of the Americas, will introduce teachers to the diverse materials and tech- niques of Native American baskets on view in the installation Coiling Culture: Basketry Art of Native North America . Hands-on activities for the classroom will be part of this workshop.
Shakespeare's First Folio Evening for Educators
Friday, November 11, 7:30 pm
Ackerman Hall, Level Three
Enjoy a glass of wine and a snack as Margaret Edson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Wit and survivor of twenty-five years of classroom teaching, presents a stand-up essay exploring the free-wheeling, slapdash world of Elizabethan theater (not dissimilar from a middle school classroom!) and places “To Be or Not to Be” smack dab in the center of it.
The exhibition, The First Folio: The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, will be open especially for educators from 4-7:30 pm.
To register, contact Clare Fitzgerald at email@example.com or 404-727-2363.
