Picturing America Teacher Seminar

The Georgia Museum of Art will present a three-day seminar that focuses on the images and themes of the NEH Picturing America and ties those works from our collections and to architecture and interiors in Athens, GA. The target audience is Georgia librarians and K-12 classroom teachers who have received the Picturing America sets through the pilot project or who will receive the sets through applications to the Endowment. Activities include lectures by curators and invited humanities scholars, gallery tours, sessions in the galleries with art educators and docents, tours of local historic sites and two private collections, the use of museum publications related to the seminar topics for participants' schools or local libraries. Participants will work in teams to develop lesson plans using Picturing America. The museum will work with the Georgia Center for Continuing Education to design the seminar as a course through which teachers may earn professional credit for their participation.
