(Snow Date: Wednesday, February 4, 2015)
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The workshop for teachers will explore Poseidon and the Sea: Myth, Cult, and Daily Life, an exhibition that investigates the realm of Poseidon and its connection to almost every aspect of the ancient Mediterranean world, from mythology and belief systems to activities of daily life. The exhibition features more than one hundred works of ancient Greek, Roman, and Etruscan art, including black- and red-figure vases, terra cotta, glassware, marble sculptures, colorful mosaics, coins, and reliefs. Poseidon and the Sea offers a window into the ancient world, and people's relationship to and interaction with the sea for travel, commerce, and sustenance. It will enable students to learn about many aspects of ancient culture, including mythological stories about Poseidon and the impact that these myths had within society
The workshop will include an overview of the exhibition by coordinating curators, Kathy Hart, Senior Curator of Collections and Curator of Academic Programming, and Essi Ronkko, Curatorial Assistant and Art Handler; teaching strategies and curricular connections led by museum educator, Rebecca Karp; and a studio activity (no previous art experience necessary) led by museum educator, Neely McNulty. A range of resources will be shared and participants will leave with all of the materials and information that they need to connect the exhibition with the curriculum.
Participation in this workshop is limited to twenty-five people. The cost of the workshop is $35 per person, and it is recommended for five contact hours toward re-certification. Pre-registration is required by Monday, January 26.
