Tuesday June 19th

We’ll start the morning at THNOC’s classroom at 610 Toulouse Street for breakfast and discussion. Then we’ll head to the Williams Research Center, where staff members will do an archival show and tell featuring items from THNOC's holdings. Later, back in the classroom, participants will engage in hands-on activities with replica museum objects, reproductions of archival maps and documents, and items from the institution's teaching collection.

Wednesday, June 20th

We'll meet in NOMA's Stern Auditorium for coffee and pastries and to exchange ideas with colleagues. Then we'll tour the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden to learn about its history and future plans. Throughout the day, discussion and activities will feature the stories of the objects and collectors that have added to the rich artistic history of New Orleans. Lesson plans, images and classroom activities will be provided to help you bring art in to your classroom.

We are happy to offer this workshop to all educators, but because space is limited, we will give priority registration to local, active teachers. We encourage you to register, however, as we do still have space available.
