K–12 educators can find inspiration for their students in the Chrysler Museum’s summer exhibition, Alma W. Thomas: Everything Is Beautiful. Join community-based artist and Old Dominion University education professor Dr. Natalia Pilato for three-days of in-person professional development. Investigate the foundation of Thomas’s work as an educator and artist and cultivate creative ideas for curriculum building through individual and collaborative artistic investigations. Learn to use visual art, puppetry, gardening, and poetry in the classroom, and discover how to infuse your teaching practice with principles that Thomas embraced in her artmaking and more than 40 years of teaching.
