Teacher Workshops

Teacher workshops focus on works of art in the BMA's collection or in special exhibitions. Most teacher workshops include close examination of art in the galleries, mini-lectures, hands-on activities, and creative ideas for integrating art in the classroom. Teachers receive images and extensive background information. Workshops are typically held twice a year on a Saturday and last about four hours.

Explore the largely unknown body of sculptural work by American artist Jack Whitten through this exhibition workshop. Investigate the featured sculptures and paintings and discover how Whitten draws inspiration from African aesthetics and Greek language, mythology, and history to forge a new American perspective. Participants will enjoy a tour of the exhibition, engage in an art-making project, and find ways to connect the ideas and forms of Whitten’s work to the classroom curriculum.
