Find out what’s in store for educators at the Museum in 2018–19. We’re exploring the role of art in service learning, sparked by an exhibition of the art of Yael Bartana. Discover ways to incorporate service-learning projects into your classroom with Pamela Prell, program director at Need in Deed, and Rachel Gelb, ESL teacher at Bache-Martin Elementary School.

After the presentation, choose your own adventure—delve deeper into the work of Bartana, sample a staff-led school tour, sign up for a membership with our K–12 Educator Discount, register your class for a field trip, or discuss ideas with our team of museum educators.
