Teacher Workshop “Visual Expressions: Illustrating Prose”

Law Building

How can art inspire students to write and create works of art? How can the MFAH be used as a resource in classrooms? This workshop for teachers explores the art of Henry Ossawa Tanner and how artists use imagery to illustrate or tell a story. Tanner’s life, art, and travels will inspire students to express themselves artistically in many ways. The workshop offers methods for showing students how to write, illustrate, and share their own work. 

Designed for small groups, in-depth teacher workshops introduce new ways of thinking about the curriculum and innovative teaching approaches through the exploration of the museum’s art collections and exhibitions. Workshops are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Each participant receives an illustrated teacher packet and certificate of participation. Lunch is provided. Registration is $35 for MFAH Members and $40 for nonmembers. Most workshops are approved by the Texas Association of Gifted and Talented.
