Talleres para profesores

Anímese a utilizar el arte del retrato en su aula. Sin importar la asignatura que enseña, estudios sociales, inglés o artes visuales, usted aprenderá y practicará técnicas para involucrar a sus estudiantes de maneras creativas e innovadoras. Al usar el arte del retrato como trampolín para discusiones más profundas sobre la biografía y nuestra historia colectiva, la Galería de Retratos se esfuerza por crear una experiencia sin precedentes para los profesores, a medida que vislumbramos el pasado y examinamos el presente.

Todos los talleres requieren un registro previo e incluyen recorridos interactivos de una exhibición seleccionada, componentes prácticos y recursos para llevar, que le proporcionan a los profesores ideas y técnicas innovadoras que pueden adaptar en sus aulas. Todos los programas comienzan en el Centro de Educación de la Galería Nacional de Retratos, Sala E151, en la exhibición "Orígenes estadounidenses" en el primer piso (salvo que se indique lo contrario).

The Sweat of Their Face: Exploring Portraiture and Social History

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
5:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
Location: NPG Education Center

The Sweat of Their Face: Portraying American Workers combines art and social history with representations of American laborers. During this workshop, participants will explore portraits in a variety of genres and media to learn about the changing landscape of labor in the United States. Encompassing slave laborers, child workers, miners, railway workers, and steel workers, as well as the gradual disappearance of the worker that has become a topic of conversation today, portraiture artists’ depictions of American workers are capable of revealing much more than the worker’s story.
