Program Description

Explore mathematics, marine biology, feminist art practices, and craft—and how these translate to STEAM classrooms—during this day-long professional development workshop. Teachers will view the exhibition Crochet Coral Reef: TOXIC SEAS By Margaret and Christine Wertheim and the Institute For Figuring with curator Samantha De Tillio, followed by a keynote speech by Artist Studio Alumnus Maika'i Tubbs. He will discuss his work in environmental activism and share ways to inspire students with similar projects. In the afternoon, teachers will participate in a hands-on workshop while discussing themes of ecology and climate change. At the end of the day, participants will explore methods for incorporating similar processes in art classrooms and curricula connections that can be made with other subject areas.
