The professional development is part of the grant for art activities provided by the Joe Barnhart Foundation.
The museum’s Learning Through Art program, which is an innovative, inter-disciplinary, art-centered curriculum for grades 1-6, is the basis for the training. The program connects the museum's collection of world art into the art, language arts, social studies, science, and math curriculum.
Comments from those attending included: “As always this was an awesome experience,” “This opportunity provided by the Barnhart Foundation for BISD teachers is phenomenal and most appreciated,” and “Very informative, wonderful ideas to integrate the art into all subjects.”
