College of Critical & Professional Studies

2 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Art can be an expressive tool to discuss social issues important to students and their community. The themes of The Summer Teacher Institute will focus on how to integrate art into the classroom by exploring the Barnes Foundation’s largely European 19th and early 20th century collection with a contemporary and multicultural lens. Teachers will be immersed in the objective method of founder, Dr. Albert C. Barnes, and learn teaching strategies to bring back to the classroom that help students develop their visual literacy skills. Teachers will also meet artists that communicate ideas of social justice as well as take a walking tour of public art to see how sculpture and murals impact the community. Teachers will experience the special exhibition: Mohamed Bourouissa: Urban Riders, to see how one artist interacts with the community to create artwork. The program includes gallery lectures, discussions, and hands-on art making activities. Teachers will take home lesson plan ideas and educational resources that integrate art across the curriculum into content areas such as: English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
