**Canceled** Evening with Educators: Inventing the Modern World Teacher Workshop

Mint Museum UPTOWN

Saturday, Nov 23

10:30AM - 4:30PM

Admission: $20 member / $30 non-member

Pre-registration required.

NEW Evenings with Educators Workshop sessions featuring curriculum connections for 6th-12th grade Visual Art Teachers.

The sessions offer a unique opportunity for teachers to explore interdisciplinary activities and ideas inspired by designs and works of art from the special exhibition Inventing the Modern World.

World’s fairs were the most important vehicles for debuting advancements in modern living. Fairs functioned as showcases and marketplaces for design. They democratized design, exposing countless visitors and others to the latest artistic and technological achievements of their time.

Working with Mint staff and teaching artist Pam Wittfeld, participants will explore exhibit objects, and consider the essential questions: How is art and design a reflection of history, culture, and ideas? How does design innovation enhance our lives?  Participants will create a three-dimensional container or box form inspired by exhibition objects, with surface decoration influenced by cultural design or theme-based subject matter gleaned from exhibition objects.   

Pre-registration required. Please use our secure online registration or call 704-337.2107 to register by phone.


Participants will receive .5 CEU for workshop. Participants can complete follow-up assignment for additional .5 CEU (information provided during workshops). All participants (CMS and non-CMS) will receive a certificate of course completion to process for credit with their respective schools.
