Virtual Teacher Workshop: Flood Mapping with Artist Stacy Levy

Join Stacy Levy, an environmental artist featured in the exhibition, "Rising Tides: Contemporary Art and the Ecology of Water", in an interactive workshop to inspire you and your students. In this program, you will envision new ways to look at the water in our landscape - not as a blue line on the map, but as living (and soggy) places. Make connections to history, science and the visual arts in discussing how water has flowed across the land over time. Explore how the different usage of the land has affected the region's watershed. Discuss ways to be water detectives in your own backyard.

Using United States Geological Survey maps, engage in an exercise of solving mysteries of the forms of our local waters. Examine the links to climate change and rain along with investigating how flooding is becoming "a new tide" of the rivers and streams "breathing" in and out. Learn different ways you can embrace these changes and create a better understanding of our water for both you and your students. All grade levels and subject area teachers are encouraged to register.

You MUST register at the Michener Art Museum at www.MichenerArtMuseum.org. Fee for this class is $20.00 per person, payable to the Michener Art Museum. Any information or questions, email aromano@michenerartmuseum.org.

You ONLY register on this site if you need Act 48 hours. There is a $15 fee for Act 48 hours.
