Educator Art Workshop—Seeing Value

Open to: K-12 Educators
Opportunity at a Glance: What makes a work of art valuable, and who decides? During this workshop participants will do the following:  

  • Join Met experts to consider how value has been assigned to art across time and place and discuss how value can change in different contexts;
  • Take part in multiple sessions to learn and evaluate a range of criteria for value: an artwork’s craftsmanship or the preciousness of its materials, its narrative function or role in expressing identity, its relationship to important rituals, and more; and
  • Through writing, art making, music, and group discussion, teachers develop engaging and accessible classroom strategies to allow students to express ideas about what holds value to them.

Key dates:  Thursday June 9 from 10:00a.m. – 3:00p.m.
Location: The Met, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY
