Hi All,

Learning through Looking
July 7-19, 2003

Each summer the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Division of Education offers a two-week, intensive course for teachers of all grade levels and subject areas. Now in its seventeenth year, the VAST program offers sixty teachers the opportunity to renew their spirit of inquiry as they immerse themselves in the Museum's collections and explore the special nature of art and its use as a resource in their classrooms.

Visualizing Words and Worlds: Writing, Literature and Art
      Visualizing Words and Worlds, All grade levels, K-12

      In this course, participants develop an understanding of the latest research on how the fine arts and verbal arts enhance the creation and understanding of each other. To strengthen student performance in both areas, teachers explore the links between the verbal and visual arts through the study and crafting of both. They work directly with local artists and work in groups to mount their own exhibits. After exploring strategies for integrating these media, teachers develop plans and materials to use with their students or for the museum to use with school groups. 3 graduate credits only.

      8:30 - 3:00 July 14 - 17 & 22 - 25 (8 days) (Registration deadline 6/20) Held at the James A. Michener Art Museum, Doylestown
