Artists and the Environment

This program is full. Email visitors@cartermuseum.org to be placed on the waiting list.

The exhibition Discarded: Photographs by Anthony Hernandez documents contemporary human-environmental interaction in Southern California. Using this exhibition as a springboard, participants will explore how artists throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries have included the American landscape in their artwork to explore themes of preservation, exploitation, and conservation, among others. Museum educators will offer strategies, resources, and activities designed to introduce new curriculum with images or supplement existing curriculum.

This interdisciplinary program is geared toward administrators, homeschool educators, librarians, PreK–12 teachers at public and private schools, and preservice teachers. Teachers of AP Human Geography, English/language arts, ESL, geography, gifted and talented, science, social studies, U.S. history, and visual arts, as well as teacher teams from the same school are all encouraged to apply! All participants receive two CPE hours in Fine Arts—Art: All Levels, Instructional Techniques: All Levels, and Social Studies: All Levels.

Space is limited; preregistration is required. Cancellations must be received forty-eight hours in advance of the program or a $25 fee will be charged; program materials will be mailed to absent teachers.
