Amplify Workshop: Creative Change, Growth, and Transformation

Join Amplify for a professional learning community workshop inspired by the special exhibition The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China.

The evening workshop for educators, teaching artists, and administrators features hands-on activities that explore the embedded history of materials, manipulation, and adaptation. Using artwork by contemporary Chinese artists on view at the Smart Museum, the workshop also considers strategies for working across cultures and disciplines. 

FREE, but space is limited. Please register in advance »
