6 NJ or PA hours
Location: Committee Room, Galleries (this is a two-part workshop: the first session is at PMA, the second session is at WHYY)
$65 ($52 members)
When we look closely at art, we make a personal connection with it. Learn to capture this rich experience by writing and producing a podcast about your personal response to a work of art. In the first session of this workshop, we will engage in guided looking, personal reflection, and small group discussion about several artworks at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Using these strategies, you will then focus individually on a work of your choice. This deep looking and thinking will provide the content for your podcast.
In the second session, hosted at WHYY, you will learn to employ audio storytelling skills as you turn your response into an engaging podcast. Using readily available technology, you will learn basic recording and sound editing techniques, as well as strategies to use these techniques in your classroom.
*Please note that this is a two-part workshop, on two consecutive Saturdays. You may select the morning or afternoon session. You must attend both days to receive professional development credit.
