Our workshops equip teachers to integrate learning through the visual arts into their classrooms. We supply a range of resources to help connect our current exhibitions with New Hampshire and Vermont state curricula. Participants are also eligible for contact hours toward teacher recertification.
Workshops related to exhibitions at Hood Downtown, the Orozco fresco and other art on campus will be offered periodically during the museum closure. The following teacher workshops will take place during the winter of 2017.
Wednesday, February 1, 8:45 am–3:00 pm
Orozco's Epic Today
In this teacher workshop, Mary Coffey, Associate Professor of Art History at Dartmouth and author of the award-winning How a Revolutionary Art Became Official Culture: Murals, Museums, and the Mexican State, will lead teachers through the Orozco murals. Teachers will also tour the controversial “Hovey murals,” a set of murals created in reaction to Orozco’s work which illustrator Walter Beach Humphrey described as more “Dartmouth” in character.
