What is Integrating the Arts: China?

The Walters Art Museum is proud to announce the upcoming launch of the fourth module of its interdisciplinary arts integration web resource, featuring the Chinese collection. Integrating the Arts includes content, timelines, videos and printable lesson plans and interactive activities that focus on selected objects from the Walters’ medieval, ancient, and renaissance, and Chinese collections. All components of the website align with Maryland’s Voluntary State Curriculum.

This resource is an invaluable tool for teaching science, language arts, social studies, and science and for integrating arts into the core curricula. Besides the selected art objects, teachers are also able to access all 1000 plus art objects that are currently available on the Walters website.

This workshop will provide you with a unique opportunity to work one on one with Walters’ educators to learn how to infuse the arts into your curriculum using the collection as well as the website.

What will the teacher workshop include?

  • An introduction to arts integration
  • In-depth tutorial on how to use Integrating the Arts
  • Guided gallery tours of the permanent collection
  • Lesson plan outlines
  • Time to work with your team to brainstorm and create a lesson seed based on the Walters collection
  • Time to brainstorm with Walters educators
  • An opportunity to give feedback on the website
