In this course, teachers will have an opportunity to work with Emory faculty, Carlos Museum curators, and local artists to explore the artistic and religous traditions of Africa and South Asia.  Teachers will explore the richness of African religions that merge traditional practices with Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism through the newly reinstalled African galleries, Hindu traditions both in India and here in Atlanta, and Buddhism in India and Tibet, including a look at the exhibition Doorway to an Enlightened World: The Tibetan Shrine of Alice S. Kandell.  This course will consider the World History and 7th grade social studies curriculum and discuss optional STEAM-related projects in response to the course content.

Fee:  $115 museum members, $130 general public.

Workshops for Teachers, 2015 - 2016

Teachers tell us that the workshops and PLU courses at the Carlos Museum are unique. They value these programs because of the engaging content and the opportunity to work in small groups with scholars and artists who are not only experts in their areas, but masterful and generous instructors. Join us this academic year for a rich mix of workshops that range from explorations in the galleries with Emory faculty and curators, to hands-on art experiences with guest artists. 

Workshops will be held from 5-7 pm and will meet in the Tate Room on the Plaza Level. Unless otherwise noted the fee is $8 for museum members and $12 for non-members.  To register, contact Julie Green at jgree09@emory.edu.

2016 - 17 Workshops TBA
