November Programs for Teachers

We are gearing up for two exciting programs for teachers this month:

Our first program will be on Saturday, November 7 at 9:00 a.m.  My colleague Logan Acton and I will be leading a teacher workshop on our special exhibitions that take a fresh look at the Museum’s collections through the theme of performance: All the World’s a Stage and Performance/Art.  This workshop starts before the Museum opens to the public, giving teachers the opportunity to explore these exhibitions before other visitors arrive.  Complete details, including registration, can be found on the Web site.

For our Thursday Evening Program for Teachers this month, we will be joining the public lecture Manet, Models, Portraits, and “La Vie Moderne,” given by Dr. Nancy Locke, Associate Professor of Art History, Penn State University, on November 12 at 7:00 p.m.  Admission to this lecture is free for teachers, upon presentation of faculty ID.  Advance registration is not required and seating is limited.  Teachers are welcome to arrive early and join education staff in the “Teachers Lounge” in the Atrium Café.

Information about these and other upcoming programs for teachers can be found at www.DallasMuseumofArt.org/teachers.  We hope to welcome you to the Museum soon for one of these programs!
