The museum invites educators to sign up for our next teacher workshop that takes place on August 16. This half-day session focuses on the upcoming exhibition HI Society, on view August 13-January 4, 2015 at the Honolulu Museum of Art Spalding House.
The exhibition explores social issues such as identity, diversity and power here in Hawai‘i through the lens of local artists. Brenda Cablayan and April AH Drexel will address the question Who lives here?; photographers Cheyne Gallarde and Shuzo Uemoto will explore identity through portraiture; and a multi-media collaboration between Edwin Ushiro and Lopaka Kapanui will explore the role of folklore as a means of shaping one’s actions and attitudes.
The workshop will give educators a first look at the exhibition, and an opportunity to participate in the hands-on Make Art activity that will be offered as a part of the Social Studies Through Art guided school tour.
Space is limited, so please sign up for this workshop today. Parking and refreshments will be provided.
