Saturdays , 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., from September 26 to November 21
Seattle Asian Art Museum, Volunteer Park
This workshop series is facilitated by Mary Barber Roberts, an NCTA seminar leader, and is offered by the East Asia Resource Center in conjunction with the Seattle Asian Art Museum’s Gardner Center for Asian Art and Ideas Saturday University Lecture Series. Additional funding comes from the Southeast Asia Center and the South Asia Center in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington.
In "Focus on Asia: Photography Past and Present," nine speakers will explore how photography in Asia encompasses memory and identity; distance and intimacy; reportage, advocacy, and aesthetics.
Each Saturday, educators will attend the public lecture from 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. and then meet for a writing workshop from 11:00 a.m - 1:30 p.m. During the workshop, time is given to solitary writing in the art galleries in response to the morning lecture. The group then reconvenes to share working drafts. The workshop nurtures educators as writers through self-reflection and group discussion.
Free admission to the lecture and four free clock hours are available for each workshop. Educators can earn up to 36 clock hours by attending all of the workshop sessions. New workshop attendees are required to commit to attending at least two sessions. The workshop is open to current K-12 teachers and each session is limited to 15 participants. To participate, please indicate the days you can commit to attending on the online application form by September 14, 2015. The instructor, Mary Barber Roberts, will contact you to confirm your spot in each session.
