About the Program:
The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art is pleased to offer arts integration workshops designed to introduce educators to the value and ease of using artworks and art projects as inspiration and departure points for teaching creative classroom lessons in language arts, science, social studies, and math. Using artworks from the MGMoA collection as inspiration, the workshops demonstrate how art can serve as an effective learning tool, meeting the needs of diverse learning styles.
The MGMoA Arts Integration Educator Training Program has proven to help educators bring the benefits of arts integration to all area students through the use of the unique resources of the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art. The program familiarizes educators with the Museum and inspires them to utilize the Museum as a teaching resource. As a result, these teachers introduce art and the Museum to thousands of area students each year, encouraging these students to become life-long learners.
Educators also receive discounts on MGMoA Art Workshops for Adults!
