Teacher Workshop Series

Join us for workshops that support teachers in all aspects of their professional life - as leaders, learners, and professionals. Increase your skills, knowledge, and abilities in the arts.

Back to Basics: Sculpture
10:30 AM – 1 PM FREE
In Person
Take some time to get back to basics with foundational art-making techniques. Led by a practicing artist, this studio workshop will reintroduce teachers to the basics of sculpture practice in a laid-back and caring environment. Set aside some time to recharge, recenter, and remind yourself what you love about the arts.

Back to Basics: Still Life
THURSDAY, MAY 11, 2023
4:30 PM – 6 PM FREE
In Person
Ease into the end of your school year with the still life, a centuries-old subject matter. Inspired by works on view in temporary exhibitions and the permanent collection, explore how this seemingly simple art form has the power to tell stories and demonstrate the foundational elements of art with a gallery tour and time in the studio. Afterward, enjoy complimentary admission into ArtMix, the Crocker’s fun-filled evening extravaganza.
