Teacher's Professional Development
Artist, Ebony Patterson's work addresses themes of race and gender through her multi-media sculpture, tapestries, and installations. While both important and timely, issues of race and gender are often difficult to discuss with our students in the classroom. As art teachers, we know that art can open doors for students to explore difficult topics in productive and meaningful ways. Using Patterson's exhibition, Dead Treez, as inspiration, teachers in this day long professional development workshop will have the opportunity to engage in discussions about race and gender so that they can, in turn, be better prepared to discuss these topics with their students.
