Artstor is both a database of 2 million high-resolution images and an effective tool for classroom presentations. Because the Wachovia Education Resource Center has an exclusive agreement with Artstor that allows us to give access to this database to K-12 educators, we offer training in how to explore the database and how to create engaging presentations. Whether you are new to Artstor or are looking for some new bells and whistles, join us for this free teacher workshop.
