SOLD OUT – Virtual Teacher’s Retreat » The Art of Letting Go

Crystal Bridges Museum Educators Nicole Leonard and Sally Ball invite you to attend our virtual Art of Letting Go teacher’s retreat on Saturday, February 6. Take a break from the demands of the classroom and let us nurture you with artmaking and close-looking exercises, exploring two works of art from our collection. Engage in a unique reflection process as we discuss the power of words and their role in shaping personal and collective identities in our everyday lives. When you are enriched, every part of your life is richer. This is a time to focus on your needs and, while you’re at it, speak, share, write, create, and bank a few PD hours too. Let’s make this one all about you!

A free art kit will be provided for this event. The deadline to order for shipping is January 27. The deadline to pick up art kits in the Crystal Bridges main lobby is February 5. Participants are also welcome to use their own supplies.

Art Kit Includes:

  • Scrap fabric
  • Scrap ribbon
  • Sewing needle
  • Sewing thread
  • Black permanent marker
  • Tacky glue
  • Scissors

Free, register online or with Guest Services. Once registered, you will receive a link to join the meeting in your ticket registration confirmation email.
