Seeing Nature in Art, Seeing Art in Nature 

2-day Courses:
Friday/Saturday, November 1-2 (Part I)
and/or March 20-21 (Part II)

We invite preK-12 art and science educators to join us this fall as we immerse ourselves in art and the natural world at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln. Inspired by the fall inauguration of Andy Goldsworthy‘s Watershed in deCordova’s 30-acre Sculpture Park and the upcoming photography-based exhibitions in the Museum building, All the Marvelous Surfaces: Photography Since Karl Blossfeldt and Peter Hutchinson: Landscapes of My Mind.  Sculpture, photography, and the natural world around us will provide the backdrop for developing interdisciplinary, place-based, experiential learning strategies, lesson plans, and projects. Science and visual arts teachers – and teachers from all disciplines – will together discover the aesthetics of scientific classification, use photography to investigate and document the ephemeral, observe the seasonal changes of both the natural world and outdoor sculpture, and create a sense of place through making. 

Instructors: museum educator Julie Bernson and artist-educator Kyle Browne

Sponsored by EDCO and open to educators of all disciplines at independent and public schools
