About the Virtual Educator Camp Series
NMWA’s Virtual Educator Summer Camp is designed for all educators, school teachers, adults supporting students learning remotely, home school instructors, and scout leaders. Inspired by the Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC) Institutes and NMWA’s collection, sessions are hands-on, participatory, and fun. Sessions will explore the museum‘s collection and resources, introduce historic and contemporary women artists, and engage participants in experimental making and close looking. Guest instructors include artists and educators from around the country.
Participants will receive a recommended supply list, applicable digital resources, and a Zoom meeting link in advance of each session. Camp activities are designed to use materials and tools attendees might have at home, to encourage repurposing and seeing everyday objects in a new light. Session participants can request professional development certificates of completion reflecting total earned participation hours.
