Junior High & High School Art Teacher Workshop: Distance, Dust and Seeing Stars

Friday, November 1, 2019
9:00 am – 3:00 pm
“We could even be the universe’s form of consciousness. We might have come along so that the universe could look at itself… It’s such a lucky accident, having been born, that we’re almost obliged to pay attention.”
Mark Strand

Explore how artists from the earliest photographs, to current cutting edge technology, to the simplest tools of pencil and paper shape our vision of the world we share and the universe beyond. Using a variety of media, and techniques, art teachers are invited to take a giant step into the art of investigating, recording and reflecting the cosmos.
