Anti-Racist Teaching through Art and Design

Tue, Feb 23, 2021

Join us for a virtual workshop led by museum educator Hannah Heller, whose research and teaching focuses on museum inclusivity. K-12 educators will learn how to use art and design to support anti-racist learning for themselves and their students. Participants will discuss artworks from MAD's past exhibitions, identify possible pitfalls and opportunities, and reflect on ways to bring these practices into their own teaching.

New York State Educators will earn 1 CTLE hour.

Hannah Heller is a NYC-based art and museum educator who has worked at several cultural institutions, including the Museum of Arts and Design, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc., the Whitney Museum of American Art, El Museo del Barrio, and the American Folk Art Museum. She is currently a doctoral candidate in the Art & Art Education program at Teachers College, and has an MA in Museum Education from Tufts University.
