In-Person Teacher Workshops—Travel from the Classroom to Murano, Italy (Art)

Saturday, March 19, 2022, 9:30am – 12:30pm EDT
Take a deep breath and step into the sparkling, shimmering light of Venice. Join the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s team of educators in the galleries for a special tour of the exhibition Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass: American Artists and the Magic of Murano. Learn more about Venetian glass techniques and the artists it inspired. Discuss color, line, and whimsy. Are these extravagant artworks too much or just enough? This in-person gallery tour is designed for educators of all grade levels and disciplines.
