​​​​​​​​​VAST (Visual Arts as Sources for Teaching): A Summer Seminar for Teachers
​A Dolfinger-McMahon and Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation Teacher Education Program

Art can help us interrogate our past, explore contemporary culture, and chart actions for the future. In this weeklong seminar, we invite K–12 teachers to use art to frame the big questions that impact our students and the world around them. Learn practical teaching tools and strategies that will encourage your students to engage with current social issues through reflection, perspective-taking, and creative self-expression.

In this seminar, enjoy:

  • Creative warm-up activities
  • Presentations by museum staff and invited scholars
  • Gallery sessions with museum educators
  • Hands-on workshops
  • Off-site field trips
  • Sharing ideas with colleagues

To apply to this program, visit our VAST webpage.
