At 516 ARTS
516 ARTS invites K-12 educators to a free workshop designed to support your teaching by engaging with the exhibition “Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande” and by offering tools to help open dialogue about the urgent environmental topics explored in the exhibition.
The workshop includes an exhibition tour at 516 ARTS by Viola Arduini, Education & Outreach Coordinator, focusing on educational ideas and opportunities that can be used in the classroom. Special guest educator Melissa Barba, Assistant Director of the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at UTEP, El Paso, will explore reading resources for K-12, classroom activities, and educational tools that link topics of “Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande” to the classroom curriculum. Then the workshop moves to the Bosque where the participants, through walking and sketching exercises, are invited to engage in observation and place dwelling as learning tools for the classroom.
Free printed resources and a tote bag will be given to all participants. Coffee and light refreshments provided.
This workshop, presented in collaboration with Rubin Center for the Visual Arts, El Paso, Texas, is part of “Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande,” an exhibition and season-long, regional collaboration.
