How can we use art as a tool to connect our students to important issues and engage them in opportunities for dialogue and exchange?
Join New Museum and NYCORE in a FREE special 2-part interactive workshop that introduces teachers to using contemporary art in the classroom. Participants will also work intensively with international New Museum artist Nicolás Paris to explore how art can be used as a platform for discussion and exploration of ideas and have the opportunity to reflect on how to take workshop activities and strategies back into the classroom.

Thursday, February 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the New Museum
