Learning Through Art at the MFAH (LTA/MFAH) connects the museum's collections of world art into the classroom curriculum for art, language arts, math, science, and social studies. Through discussions in the museum galleries and hands-on art projects using everyday materials, LTA/MFAH elementary-level teacher training introduces TEKS and STAAR-aligned lessons that use the visual arts to teach students how to think critically and creatively as well as encourage self-confident, self-motivated and self-disciplined learners. LTA/MFAH bridges disciplines and curriculums to enable students to explore key concepts in the real-world context of the art museum while teaching literacy and writing skills, math, science, and social studies. Use the elementary curriculum to integrate higher-level cognitive skills, such as observing and organizing information, making predictions, and communicating ideas and thoughts with art inquiry methods, to promote students’ development of 21st-century skills needed to succeed in the world.Lunch and a certificate for 6 hours of SBEC & G/T approved professional development are provided at all "LTA/MFAH" teacher workshops. Registration is $45 for MFAH Members and $50 for nonmembers. Preregistration is required.�-� Click here to register for this workshop online.
