Economics & Art: Making the Connections

Friday, March 3, 2017

9 AM - 4 PM

Come explore the intersection of economics and the visual arts at the Museum! K-12 educators will learn how to deeply engage students in learning economic concepts through the exploration of works in the MMA permanent collection. Works of art can be viewed as primary source documents showing the historic impact of economics. The professional development will include discussions by experts in economics and art, interactive gallery discussions, and small working groups. Teachers will also learn about school accessibility to MMA through guided tours.

Teachers attending the workshop will be entered into a drawing for a classroom field trip to MMA sponsored by Regions Bank. The workshop is presented in collaboration with the Mississippi Council on Economic Education and the Mississippi Museum of Art. This program is free and open to K-12 educators. Lunch and .7 CEU credits are provided for free. Participants must bring a laptop or tablet with wi-fi capability.
