About Learning Through Art Workshops
Learning Through Art at the MFAH (LTA/MFAH) connects the Museum's collections of world art into the classroom curriculum for art, language arts, math, science, and social studies. Through discussions in the Museum galleries and hands-on art projects using everyday materials, LTA/MFAH elementary-level teacher training introduces TEKS and STAAR-aligned lessons that use the visual arts to teach students how to think critically and creatively as well as encourage self-confident, self-motivated, and self-disciplined learners. LTA/MFAH bridges disciplines and curriculums to enable students to explore key concepts in the real-world context of the art museum while teaching literacy and writing skills, math, science, and social studies. See detailed descriptions of the various LTA/MFAH workshops.
