Chancellor's Day Workshops

Drawing a Line: Art and Activism in NYC

Chancellor's Day, Thursday, June 9, 2016, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

New York City’s identity as a site of activism, a home for artists, and a fostering ground for art come together in this full-day, hands-on program. Examine how New Yorkers have used visual art to express their sentiments, mobilized movements, and spark action. Learn about specific artists and the movements they supported through an illustrated historian lecture, and explore ways to incorporate cartoons, posters, paintings, and other visual media in the classroom. Experience the Museum through tours and activities in our exhibitions Activist New York and Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs, and complete your own message-driven artwork. Programs in conjunction with Activist New York are made possible by The Puffin Foundation.

$80 per participant. Includes breakfast and a copy of the Activist New York Educator Resource Guide.
