Join SFMOMA and KQED to explore contemporary artist, Kerry James Marshall's compelling and colorful work. Commissioned for SFMOMA’s Haas Atrium, Marshall created two murals that investigate history and its representation in works of art. In this workshop, teachers will discover new ways to incorporate Marshall’s ideas and concepts into their curricula. Educators from SFMOMA and KQED-Spark will lead this professional development session, which will include gallery discussion and a hands-on art activity led by a published graphic novelist. Participants will receive a video about Kerry James Marshall's installation process produced by KQED-Spark, along with substantive curricular materials designed by SFMOMA and KQED.
This workshop is open to educators of all grade levels. Please do not register unless you are sure you can attend. Only one ticket per registrant may be reserved. Seats are limited to 40.
Participants will receive curriculum guides created by SFMOMA and KQED, and DVDs for classroom use produced by Art:21 and KQED Spark. Refreshments will be served. For questions, send an email to ArtsEd@KQED.org.
