More Than a Display: Installations That Inspire Collaborative Learning

March 30, 2017
9:30am - 12:30pm
$40 (Members $34)

NOTE: This program is full. Contact programs@carlemuseum.org to be added to the waitlist.

(3 PDPs) Inspired by the installations and displays of the Art Studio, this professional development workshop will explore ways to incorporate collaborative and interactive displays into your learning environment. We will reflect on how displays can capture student learning, extend on that learning and encourage collaboration. This workshop is designed to explore frameworks connected to project-based learning, as well as give educators hands-on time with materials. The workshop will also address time-management, resourcing and cost issues as related to the creation of effective and exciting displays.

Meet Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen

March 26, 2017
1:00pm
Free with Museum Admission

Multi-award-winning, New York Times best-selling duo Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen conspire again on a slyly funny tale about some very sneaky shapes. In Triangle, the first tale in a new shape trilogy, partners in crime Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen will have readers wondering just who they can trust in a richly imagined world of shapes. Visually stunning and full of wry humor, here is a perfectly paced treat that could come only from the minds of two of today’s most irreverent — and talented — picture book creators.
