This behind-the-scenes, after-hours workshop will provide Toledo area educators with tools and teaching strategies for using the art of Yayoi Kusama to teach about optics, mirrors, and reflection. The session will include an exclusive visit to the exhibition Yayoi Kusama: Fireflies on the Water, Q & A session with TMA Director Curatorial Affairs, Halona Norton-Westbrook, and demonstrations of art-integrated activities that can be used to teach K-12 students about the optical properties of light. .
The session is designed for K-12 art and science educators. Participating teachers will receive a certificate of attendance, Visual Literacy Activity Card deck, and Teacher Resource packet. To support the collaborative aspect of this work, we are offering educators registered for any Art & … workshop the opportunity to bring a teaching partner or collaborating educator at no additional charge.
