For Educators: Explore the Seven Essential Understandings of Indian Education for All
Two PIR credits offered
MAM’s education team is committed to offering on-going quality enrichment for classroom teachers and teaching artists. The winter cycle will focus on our teaching and learning in our dedicated Lynda M. Frost Contemporary American Indian Art Gallery. Connecting with the Essential Understandings of Indian Education for All (IEFA), we will explore Bently Spang’s FIRE/WATER installation, on view through April 20. We will touch on issues of water use and climate change, as well as language and vocabulary, appreciation versus appropriation, and creating space to amplify Native voices. Teachers of all grade levels and disciplines are welcome.

MAM offers trainings for teachers, teaching artists, and art guides. These hands-on workshops will connect with the core values and mission of MAM and share best practices in the field of art education.
