New Eyes on America: The Genius of Richard C. Woodville Teacher Workshop Parts 1 and 2

Woodville was known for his use of narrative detail and his humorous characterizations of 19th-century America.  On April 3, 2013, join curators and museum educators for a guided tour of this special exhibition while enjoying 19th-century inspired refreshments. Curator welcome at 4:45 p.m. and guided tours at 5 and 5:15 p.m. Please note that part 1 will conclude by 6:30 p.m.

The second part of this workshop will take place on April 10th and will feature a professional teaching artist who will lead you through performing arts, social studies, language arts, and visual arts integrated activities. You will use paintings as primary sources and create tableau to further investigate the historical topics depicted in Woodville’s works.  Put your writing and acting skills to the test as you translate your tableau into a scripted performance.  Aligns perfectly with your Maryland and American history curricula.
