The Art of and Social Issues Around Power


This two-day series for Pre K to Grade 12 educators is a collaboration between the Office of Arts and Special Projects and the Social Studies Department of the Department of Education. Teachers work with instructional experts and museum educators to explore the universal theme of Power.


Teams comprised of visual arts teachers and social studies teachers from the same school engage with the collections of two major art museums to consider: the representation of power in the art of various cultures, the power of a work of art to influence and inform, and social issues including power shifts and struggles, and access (or lack of access) to power.


Each session includes gallery discussions, art making, and interactive social studies experiences. Time is built into each session for teams to reflect, discuss, and plan collaborative learning experiences for their students.
