Feedback from Participants:

“The modeling a run through of a lesson you would use with students was useful. It was interesting to see how you would spark curiosity with a portrait then take the lesson in a new direction.”

“[The seminar] helped me think even more about object choice and how to train docents on selecting appropriate objects for young children. Also, I gained new ideas about using tactile objects in programs.”

Feedback from Participants:

“Thank you for such a great workshop experience a couple weeks ago! I’ve started to talk with our Education staff about the value of play – and how we must start to make extra efforts to make early childhood visitors and their caregivers more welcome in our galleries.”

“In my teaching career I’ve been to scores of workshops, many of which emphasizing energetic engagement and hands-on experience but failing to ever get the workshop participants up on their feet!  Thanks for having us do what we want our students to do and allowing us to see the lesson opportunities from their perspective.”

“Thank you for a great two days! I loved that I got to play during the workshop.”
