“Learning to Look with the National Portrait Gallery” Summer Teacher Institute

Deadline: 
April 1, 2019
Dates: 
June 24, 2019

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.

 The summer institutes will be held June 24–28, 2019 and July 8–12, 2019.

 To ensure participation, a nonrefundable program fee of $100 per person is due upon acceptance into the teacher institute. Participants are responsible for travel and lodging costs.

To apply. Please direct queries to npgeducation@si.edu or 202-633-8503. Application deadline is April 1, 2019.
