Exploring Social Justice Through the Arts – Part I

Tuesday, March 26th 2019
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Event Description

Join this year’s Teacher in Residence Carolyn Bennett as she leads an activity and discussion on using primary sources in the arts while exploring social justice.

The Library of Congress has over 900 WPA posters in its free-use online collection. Participants will explore ways to engage students in artistic inquiry through use of these rich primary sources, and strategies for increasing students’ capacity for personal artistic expression. Though the specific webinar content may be used in an elementary classroom or visual arts course, the strategies presented will help ALL students broadly use the performing and visual arts to explore primary sources.

Please request ADA accommodations at least five business days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or ada@loc.gov.
