SPA’s Art Contest Teacher Workshop
Friday, October 27, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
SPA’s annual Art Contest Teacher Workshop now features two options for teachers: a Pre-K through Middle School level workshop, as well as a High School level workshop. In these sessions, teachers will explore this year’s theme, Storytellers, while learning about entry guidelines and the judging process for the 20th Annual Wells Fargo Student Art Contest.
This year’s art contest theme, Storytellers, is inspired by SPA’s presentation of the cinematic shadow play Feathers of Fire. This performance takes its story from the Shahnameh, the great Persian epic. The Storytellers theme encourages students to tell their personal story through their submission. In the wake of the trauma caused by Hurricane Harvey, SPA believes this opportunity to share stories through visual art will be particularly meaningful. Workshops will be led by Glassell Junior School faculty members Claudia Zopoaragon and Vehishta Kaikobad. Museum tour and lunch are included. This workshop is eligible for CPE credit.
If you’re experience financial hardships due to Harvey, please contact [email protected] for fee waiver information.
SPA Teacher Workshops are made possible by support from Conoco Phillips, HEB, and Wells Fargo.
