This workshop for teachers will explore Canaletto’s Vedute Prints: An Exhibition in Honor of Adolph Weil Jr. Although the Italian eighteenth-century artist Antonio Canaletto is best known for his paintings of luminous, sweeping views of the Grand Canal and Piazza San Marco, the Vedute, a portfolio of prints made in the early 1740s, reveal another side of Venice. These etchings are intimate in scale and encompass both real and imaginary views, from urban portraits to peaceful landscapes.
The workshop will include an overview of the exhibition and a special printmaking workshop with Dartmouth Studio Art Professor Louise Hamlin. Participants will gain hands-on experience with all of the steps involved in the etching process. 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 fourteen 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, September 13. To register please go to http://hood-museum-canaletto-teacher-workshop.eventbrite.com.

Spend a day at the Hood Museum of Art exploring the ways in which the unique climate and conditions of the Arctic and Subarctic regions of the world have shaped indigenous cultures of the far north.
Through sculpture, tools, clothing, and prints on view in the installation Tradition and Transformation: Twentieth-Century Inuit Art from the Collection of the Hood Museum of Art, teachers will consider how these works can support lessons in geography, economics, history, and art.
The workshop will include an overview of the installation, modeling of tour strategies, classroom resources, and the opportunity to participate in a printmaking experience modeled on the type of stonecut printing practiced in the region.
Participation in this workshop is limited to fifteen people. The cost of the workshop is $25 per person and is recommended for four contact hours toward recertification.
