THE POWER OF ART April 25 – 28, 2013

Celebrating its 20th year in 2013, The Power of Art honors the role of art in education to engage students with diverse learning styles and challenges. A three-day workshop in Washington, DC engaged participants (art teachers, principals and cultural partners) in tours and workshops at The Lab School, activity-oriented tours throughout the Smithsonian Institution, and discussions with leaders from the fields of art, art education, special education, and museums. For the first time in 2013, art teachers participated in partnership with their principals and cultural partners. Together, they adapted ideas, resources and activities they experienced during The Power of Art for implementation in their own school and community. The art teacher as leader, engaging diverse learning styles through art, and school and museum partnerships emerged as important themes during the program.

The Power of Art is a partnership between The Lab School of Washington, DC and the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution.
