Literacy in the Arts

Discover meaningful connections between the collections of the Walters Art Museum and the English Language Arts anchors of the Common Core Standards. Walters educators will guide small groups through a series of in-depth activities that integrate visual and language arts. After you explore the museum in small groups and participate in writing and gallery activities, you will leave with the confidence to lead similar lessons with your students. Participants in this workshop, ideal for teachers of all grades and disciplines, will use the skills of inference, analysis, collaboration, creativity, sequencing, and communication.

If you have a group of 10 or more teachers, we can offer this as a private workshop either at the Walters or at a location of your choice. Email schoolprograms@thewalters.org for details.
