Event Description

Choose your own adventure!

Explore artworks from the collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts using Harvard Project Zero thinking routines and establish a community of practice along the way.

Join educators from NMWA for small-group discussions about the theme of your choice:

  • Art & Advocacy: Viewing and discussing visual art that connects to individuals and communities for the purpose of inspiring social change.
  • Make a Wish: Considering and comparing visual art that explores the growth and development of people, plants, and animals.
  • Powerful Beyond Measure: Investigating portraits across time and considering how to recast classical portraiture traditions to celebrate contemporary identities.

This program’s themes are inspired by DCPS Arts Framework for Learning and are applicable across grade and subject areas.

In advance of the program, check out the virtual gallery for each theme (hyperlinked above) and decide on your favorite.

During the program, participants will be placed in a break-out room based on their selected theme to engage in small-group discussions and brainstorming. All small groups will be introduced to and practice the same Harvard Project Zero thinking routines using two artworks from the corresponding virtual gallery.
