Do you have plans for tomorrow night, Thursday, October 8?  If not, I hope you will join me for a gallery conversation at 7:00 p.m.  All educators are welcome, and the program is free.

This will be our second Thursday Evening Program for Teachers, which is a new series of monthly programs for educators.  We’ll be discussing two paintings in our collection of 18th century French art: The Abduction of Europa by Jean Baptiste Marie Pierre and a new acquisition by Jacques-Louis David, Apollo and Diana Attacking the Children of Niobe.

The program starts at 7:00 p.m., and we will meet in the Atrium Café.  Arrive early and listen to live Jazz in the Atrium.  Tables will be reserved starting at 6:30 for a “Teachers Lounge.”  Food and drink are available for purchase in the Café…bring a friend and make an evening of it. 

Hope to see you there!

Kicking off a New Program for Teachers

On September 10 at 7:00 p.m., all educators are invited to participate in our first Thursday Evening Program for Teachers.  Artist Lesli Robertson will join us to share her creative process and to involve teachers in a community response project.  Participation is free and advance registration is not required. 

Lesli is a textile artist by training, but in her creative process she often combines materials that are a sharp contrast to the usual fibers. She will create a piece incorporating elements created by DMA visitors and other community members.  Check out photos of other programs Lesli has led for Museum visitors lately. 

Get here a little early and enjoy the “Teachers Lounge” in the Atrium Cafe, starting at 6:30.  Look for the reserved tables and relax while listening to the live Jazz in the Atrium.  Food and drinks will be available for purchase.  We’ll depart from the Atrium at 7:00 to meet with Lesli.

This year a different Thursday evening program will be highlighted for teachers each month, including gallery conversations, lectures, and art-making opportunities.  Visit our website for information about upcoming programs. 

I am looking forward to this opportunity for educators to come together in a community for a monthly experience that explores creativity and makes connections to our collection.  Gather up your teacher friends and join me on September 10 for this first program.
