Integrating portraiture into the classroom provides exciting opportunities to connect students with history, biography, visual art, and many other subjects. The Summer Teacher Institute will take a broad look at the Portrait Gallery’s collection.  Participants will learn how to “read” portraiture and use the art as a springboard into a more in-depth discussion about biography and history. Teachers in grades kindergarten–12 may apply as individuals or as part of a team. Priority will be given to social studies, English/language arts, and visual arts teachers.
