TAM Teach! The Art of Science

Thursday, January 17, 2019, 3:30-7pm

We often think of science and art as opposites – “left-brain” and “right-brain.” But scientists and artists have a lot in common! Learn how artistic practices mirror NGSS Practices and support Crosscutting Concepts. Get a special, private up-close look at works of glass art in the new Rebecca and Jack Benaroya Wing. Experience a science-related art activity, and walk away with new ideas for arts integration in your own classroom.

This workshop is a collaboration between Tacoma Art Museum and the Museum of Glass. TAM Teach! workshops are open to all K–12 educators, including classroom teachers, administrators, and specialists.

Registration for this workshop has closed. Please check back for future workshop offerings.

Join us for a special day just for homeschool students! Be among the first students to explore the new Rebecca and Jack Benaroya Wing, full of glass art from the Pacific Northwest.
