MAD’s Professional Development is aimed at supplementing teachers and educators existing knowledge of contemporary art, craft and design.
Professional Development Seminars are led by artists, curators and education professionals to assist teachers in utilizing art, craft and design in the classroom. The seminars and participatory workshops are based on teachers’ concerns and interests, addressing topics such as program implementation and integration with school curriculum. Seminars are designed for K-12 educators in all subjects to discover creative ways of interpreting and presenting fundamental concepts using art, craft and design as a bridge for comprehension. These professional development sessions are scheduled to coincide with the Department of Education’s designated dates for professional development for teachers.
MAD also facilitates professional development sessions for private groups of teachers and educators.
To register for programs or for more information, call the Education Department at 212.299.7759.
