Tuesday, Oct 23, 2012
5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Law Building
1001 Bissonnet Map & Directions

The life of Henry Ossawa Tanner may star an African American living at the turn of the 20th century, but his art tells the story of religion, community, and family. Tanner’s life, art, and travels will inspire students to express themselves artistically in many ways. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Henry Ossawa Tanner: Modern Spirit, this evening is perfect for teachers of language arts and social studies, as well as the arts.

Evenings for Educators are professional-development programs that feature lively talks, tours of exhibitions, interactive workshops, and discussion designed for pre-K to 12th-grade teachers, curriculum specialists, and administrators. Each participant receives an illustrated teacher packet and a certificate of participation. Refreshments are served.
