Painting a Just Picture: Art and Activism


Art & Activism

Co-hosted by experts from the National Gallery of Art, this webinar will offer new understandings of American visual art and its role in helping us understand our history. You’ll also learn how art has been integral to activism and fights for justice. The webinar will cover how to integrate the visual arts into content areas such as ELA and social studies, including an overview of strategies for cross-curricular collaboration. Finally, using works from the National Gallery of Art and K-12 students, you will receive an overview of project and lesson ideas and discuss strategies for engaging in arts instruction. This webinar will help educators across all content areas create a more diverse and powerful curriculum. Join us!
