FREE for educators
This third event in our new monthly series for educators will focus on artist Mickalene Thomas, who is best known for her elaborate painterly practice involving rhinestones and a colorful palette. Inspired by Thomas's Interior: Monet’s Blue Foyer, 2012, in the the Albright-Knox’s collection, we’ll explore how the artist's concepts of beauty, femininity, gender, and race can inspire lesson plan development and artmaking.
Please register online. Registered participants will receive a link to join this virtual event the morning of the program.

In these free monthly presentations just for educators, we will explore contemporary artists from the Albright-Knox’s collection and public art projects for curriculum inspiration. Join School and Docent Programs Coordinator Lindsay Kranz for discussions on how contemporary artists are exploring what it means to be a citizen in the 21st century and how those themes might engage students in virtual and in-person learning.
