As the National Museum of Asian art, the Freer Gallery of Art and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery preserve, exhibit, and interpret Asian art in ways that deepen our understanding of Asia, America, and the world.
Have you ever wondered how can you introduce your students to the resources of the Smithsonian without leaving your classroom? Spend a day at the Freer|Sackler learning how to connect your students to online Smithsonian resources through hands-on instruction. After light breakfast refreshments, spend an interactive morning at the Freer|Sackler examining Japanese art from the special exhibition Meeting Tessai: Modern Japanese Art from the Mary and Cheney Cowles Collection through Project Zero Thinking Routines and poetry writing. After lunch (provided), learn how an area educator incorporated Freer|Sackler Japanese art collections onto the Smithsonian’s Learning Lab online platform to create engaging learning activities for her students. After some personal exploration time in the galleries, receive hands-on instruction to create your own Learning Lab collection using Project Zero Thinking Routines and objects in the galleries that inspire you.
