Program Description

Join us for a daylong professional development workshop dedicated to contemporary ceramics. The program will start with an interactive gallery exploration of the exhibition Sterling Ruby: Ceramics, followed by educator-led activities, lesson planning opportunities, and peer discussion. During the afternoon, former MAD Artist Studios resident and ceramic artist, Lauren Skelly Bailey, will lead a hands-on workshop where participants will have a chance to further their artistic vocabulary through an investigation of layering, texture, and the reuse of discarded materials. The artist’s work will be on view at MAD through January 13, 2019, in the exhibition Lauren Skelly Bailey: Studio Focus.

Teachers’ Professional Development at MAD complements and expands upon educators’ existing knowledge of contemporary art, craft, and design. Led by artists, curators, and museum educators, participatory workshops are designed to help K–12 educators discover creative ways of interpreting and presenting fundamental concepts in all subject areas, using art, craft, and design as a bridge for comprehension.
