From an evening in the bustling city to the quiet darkness of the country, throughout history artists have depicted scenes of what happens when the lights go out. Using selections from the exhibition Night: Focus on Works on Paper, discover a variety of techniques artists have employed to achieve the effects of light and dark, artists’ nighttime sources of inspiration, and literary connections to the artworks and nocturnal themes.

Art, language arts, and social studies teachers from classroom and homeschool settings and preservice teachers are encouraged to attend, although others may benefit and are welcome to register.

Space is limited, and 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.
