Kicking off a New Program for Teachers

September 3, 2009

On September 10 at 7:00 p.m., all educators are invited to participate in our first Thursday Evening Program for Teachers.  Artist Lesli Robertson will join us to share her creative process and to involve teachers in a community response project.  Participation is free and advance registration is not required. 

Lesli is a textile artist by training, but in her creative process she often combines materials that are a sharp contrast to the usual fibers. She will create a piece incorporating elements created by DMA visitors and other community members.  Check out photos of other programs Lesli has led for Museum visitors lately. 

Get here a little early and enjoy the “Teachers Lounge” in the Atrium Cafe, starting at 6:30.  Look for the reserved tables and relax while listening to the live Jazz in the Atrium.  Food and drinks will be available for purchase.  We’ll depart from the Atrium at 7:00 to meet with Lesli.

This year a different Thursday evening program will be highlighted for teachers each month, including gallery conversations, lectures, and art-making opportunities.  Visit our website for information about upcoming programs. 

I am looking forward to this opportunity for educators to come together in a community for a monthly experience that explores creativity and makes connections to our collection.  Gather up your teacher friends and join me on September 10 for this first program.
