Picturing America: Faces, Spaces, Places

A two-day conference and follow-up workshop for fifty elementary and home school teachers in Kentucky to integrate portraits, architecture, and landscapes from the Picturing America portfolio into their teaching of U.S. history.

"Faces, Spaces, and Places of American Art and History", will explore the people, architecture, and landscapes of the Picturing America portfolio in a 2-day conference and with a 1-day follow-up workshop. The project will help teachers develop skills to examine and analyze major forms of artistic expression as a reflection of local, regional, and national history. It will give teachers the opportunity to use their knowledge of history, geography, politics, religion, languages, literature, and the visual arts as they learn the circumstances of a work's creation, its original intent, and its relevance today. It will, through a variety of learning experiences allow teachers to engage with the Picturing America portfolio and build upon the excellence of that resource through readings, slides, videos, and site visits as a means of building a visual resource to use in the classroom, across several disciplines, and in consort with the Kentucky Core Content.
