Join a cadre of art teachers from across California for a two-day virtual retreat designed to facilitate self-reflection, community connection, artmaking, and the development of inclusive and equitable classroom curriculum inspired by contemporary artmaking practices.

Collaboratively led by educators from Art21 and MOCA, this responsive workshop will be grounded in participants’ answers to the question, what do you want to do better? Over the course of the retreat, participants will generate new unit ideas inspired by the latest season of Art21, create a project sample between sessions, and informally share their progress. Pre-retreat viewing and writing preparation is required.

Outside work:

  • Pre-retreat Art21 segment viewing and writing assignment (~1.5 hours)
  • Art-making and writing assignment between sessions (2-3 hours)
  • Optional “study hall” with Art21 and MOCA instructors on April 9, 2021; 4:00 P.M.–5:00 P.M.
