The Stark Museum of Art is committed to offering relevant art-based Continuing Professional Education for teachers. Teacher workshops are offered during the school year and summer break to provide art teachers and K-12 teachers the opportunity to engage with art techniques and practices, learn new instruction methods, and connect curriculum with the collection and exhibitions at the Museum.
Teacher Workshops are always FREE for teachers in Region 5, Texas and Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.
Be the first to see our new traveling exhibition, Black Pioneers: Legacy in the American West. Featuring 50 quilts created by the Women of Color Quilters Network, this exhibition explores the path of Black history in the West with a timeline of original quilts.
During the workshop, teachers will see the exhibition before it opens to the public, create two hands-on studio art projects inspired by the exhibition, and enjoy an artist talk and meet and greet with Houston Artist Carolyn Crump.
Carolyn Crump is an award winning multimedia artist, renowned for her 3-D quilts. She uses them as storytellers and chroniclers of African-American culture. Crump is a member of the Women of Color Quilters Network. Her work has been featured in shows throughout North America and in Europe, including Black Pioneers: Legacy in the West. She has three quilts in the exhibition and was commissioned to create an educational touch quilt for the Stark Museum of Art.
Lunch will be provided for all participants. 5 CPE Hours will be provided.
Registration is FREE, but space is limited. Advanced registration is required.
