On August 15th and 16th, seventeen teachers from our DCPS and DCPCS partner schools attended Art Links Summer Institute, a series of professional development workshops designed to gear up for the new school year. After two jam-packed days of arts-integrated workshops and conversations, we’re left with some awesome photographic evidence and excitement for the year to come!
During Summer Institute teachers participated in hands-on art making workshops, shared ideas about how to incorporate the arts into their classrooms, and explored the galleries. Photos: Natalie Mann
Teachers responded to The Migration Series using only colored pencils and collage materials. One teacher was particularly struck by all of the space in Lawrence’s Panel No. 47 while the other was intrigued by the hope represented in the blue outside the window. Photos: Rachel Goldberg
The program culminated with a supplies giveaway. Here you see the bounty of supplies offered, teachers eagerly selecting those that they need most for their classrooms, and the aftermath. Photos: Natalie Mann
