This event has been canceled.

Teachers of all grade levels and specialties are invited to explore our new temporary exhibition Fashioning America: Grit to Glamour as part of ongoing series of professional development workshops.

Come enjoy a free, guided tour of the exhibition with museum educators as we dive into how American fashion has reflected the American spirit of ingenuity on the national and world stages. You’ll get hands-on, individualized time with our team to help you pair the compelling stories of both designers and wearers to classroom standards and get insights into how you can incorporate the art of fashion into your existing curricula.

Entertaining and informative, this workshop is a great way to gain inspiration and insights to take back to your students. Best of all, you’ll be able to get free professional development credit just for attending.

Free, tickets required. Reserve your spot online or by calling Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.
