The Public Education department, in collaboration with the Corcoran College of Art + Design’s Art Education program, offers professional development opportunities . These programs are designed to help teachers make meaningful classroom connections with works of art. Teachers explore special exhibitions and the Corcoran’s collection while learning new ways to incorporate object-based learning into their curriculum. Participants take part in studio experiences, writing activities, Gallery explorations, and lectures. Attendees receive an Educator Packet compliment of the Public Education department. Pre-registration is required and limited space is available.
