Evening for Educators
Evening for Educators at the Columbia Museum of Art provides professional development for South Carolina's teachers, school administrators, and curriculum specialists. This quarterly program is designed to give attendees tools to use in the classroom through workshops, interactive discussion panels, and studio project presentations.
FREE registration includes refreshments and other educational resources. Attendees will also receive documentation for Professional Development renewal credit.
Designed for small groups, in-depth teacher workshops use the Museum's art collections and exhibitions to introduce new ways of thinking about the curriculum and to show innovative teaching approaches. Each educator receives an illustrated teacher packet and a certificate of participation.
