Let’s reconnect! Join us for a teacher professional development opportunity that will include short sessions on current gallery educational practices and small group conversations centered on contemporary art. This free Spring Teacher Workshop will incorporate a guided interactive gallery tour of the Ed Ruscha: OKLA exhibition, a lesson on modern Visual Thinking Strategies methods, information on Oklahoma Contemporary’s upcoming virtual learning opportunities for students as well as brunch bites and coffee on our terrace.
The workshop will be socially distanced in the Te Ata Theater and Eleanor Kirkpatrick Main Gallery and on the second-floor terrace. Registration is free, but reservations are required and will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendance will be limited to 20 teachers and masks are required, per our COVID-19 protocols. Professional development hours will be available upon request.
