Program Description

Join us for a full-day professional development workshop focusing on the exhibitions Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro and Tanya Aguiñiga: Craft and CareThe event will start with a keynote presentation by curator Elissa Auther focusing on Schapiro’s signature “femmages” as well as work by contemporary artists who operate in the space carved out by Schapiro’s feminist critique of the hierarchy of art and craft. Educator-led gallery activities will explore fiber arts as important vehicles of self-expression, activism and community building. A Zero Waste Weaving workshop facilitated by MAD’s summer artist-in-residence Cynthia Alberto will bring participants together as they explore the interplay between surface and depth and individual and collective identities. 

Teachers' Professional Development at MAD complements and expands upon educators' existing knowledge of contemporary art, craft, and design. Led by artists, curators, and museum educators, participatory workshops are designed to help K-12 educators discover creative ways of interpreting and presenting fundamental concepts in all subjects areas, using art, craft, and design as a bridge for comprehension.
