Program Description

MAD invites you to an after-work Professional Development for Teachers for our latest exhibition Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design. Gain an opportunity to network with other educators while supplementing your existing knowledge of contemporary art, craft, and design. Marc Andre Robinson, a featured contemporary artist in the exhibition, will start the evening with a discussion on his work. Afterwards, MAD’s artist educators will lead gallery discussions and address concerns and interests such as the implementation and integration of woodworking into the school curriculum. Using the exhibition as a foundation, everyone will participate in a workshop on the woodworking technique of marquetry and woodburning.

MAD’s Professional Development for Teachers is designed for K-12 educators in all subjects. Reservations are honored on a first-come, first-served basis. Seating is limited.
