Open Enrollment Teacher Workshop

Meets daily, Monday, July 13 - Saturday, July 18 / 10:00am to 5:00pm

This course will help classroom educators deepen and advance their students’ understanding of New York and American History by combining the extraordinary collections of the New-York Historical Society with the tools and principles of the visual arts.

Participants will be introduced to theories of artistic development and lesson planning strategies for interdisciplinary, art experiences for children and young adolescents.  View more course details, including the syllabus, on the NYC DOE ASPDP website.
