17th Annual Summer Teacher Institute

Tuesday, July 16-Thursday, July 18, 2019

Myths and Mythology: Traveling the Ancient World

In July, educators will explore myths using the Cincinnati Art Museum collection. From Egypt, Greece, Rome and the ancient Near East to the art of the Islamic world, teachers will enjoy an interactive walk through history, focusing on the conserved art and artifacts, epic poems and geography of the ancient world. 

Teachers of all grade levels and disciplines, homeschool teachers, art advocates, art appreciation volunteers, pre-service education majors and teaching artists, as well as community and museum educators, are encouraged to attend. The program will investigate diverse teaching strategies for object-based learning as well as STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, Math) connections for the Pre-K through the 12th-grade classroom.

Teachers will participate in docent-guided tours, guest speaker presentations and art-making workshops.

The goal of the Summer Teacher Institute is to empower teachers to try new concepts, as well as to recharge their creative energy before the new school year begins. All attendees will receive lesson plans of the art-making sessions, as well as worksheets and helpful handouts. CEU certificates will be awarded at the conclusion of the program. Graduate credit is available through Ashland University.
