Event Description

About the Session

Join museum educators to explore new treasures in NMWA’s collection. During this session, consider this Educator Summer Camp’s theme of “Making the Ordinary Extraordinary,” as we learn about artists across time and place who have reimagined and transformed subject matter, techniques, and materials. Discover artists who might be new to you as well as works that will be on view when the museum reopens in October 2023.

About the Virtual Educator Camp Series

NMWA’s virtual Educator Summer Camp is designed for all educators: schoolteachers, adults supporting students learning remotely, home school instructors, scout leaders, etc. We just ask that you come with your learners in mind and a playful spirit!

We will offer independent 1.5-hour sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 6 through July 27. Sessions, inspired by the Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC) Institutes and NMWA’s collection, are hands-on, participatory, and fun. Sessions will explore NMWA’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. You will receive a recommended supply list, applicable digital resources, and a Zoom meeting link in advance of each session. Camp activities are designed to make use of materials and tools you might have at home, to encourage repurposing and seeing everyday objects in a new light.

Register for one session or many depending on your interest and commitments.

Session participants can request certificates of completion reflecting total earned participation hours.
