Engaging with Crystal Bridges

Recently I was able to participate in a workshop facilitated by the museum education staff at Crystal Bridges Museum of American. Anne Kraybill, Education Director, is directing us in discussion about this particular painting. I always enjoy being in this stunning architectural space looking at original works of art only an hour from where I live. Anne and her staff did a great job networking all of us, mostly university professors or teachers. I am looking forward to bringing two new groups of students to the museum in April, where Anne and her staff will conduct a similar discussion as a model for how my education students and local art teachers can bring art alive through observation and dialogue.
