On Thursday, April 9, 2020, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, based on COVID-19 pandemic response efforts,  ordered all public schools and early childhood education programs to close through the end of the 2019-2020 academic school year.   

As a result, all Bucks County IU offices, programs, and services are closed through June 30, 2020. Families who receive services from the Bucks IU will continue to be provided a continuity of education through online or virtual platforms.

Responses to Right to Know requests will also be delayed until school offices open once again.

Teacher Workshop: Using Art to Teach About Ecology and The Environment

Join the Michener Art Museum's education staff in a deeper exploration of the work in the exhibition, "Rising Tides: Contemporary Art and the Ecology of Water." Be inspired by artists whose work celebrates the natural world and encourages viewers to consider important conversations around environmental threats, climate change, and the applications of science and technology within these challenges. Work alongside colleagues and Michener staff to discuss innovative ideas and develop practical strategies that will engage your students across subject areas and grade levels.

Following focused looking and discussions in the galleries, you will be invited to create your own aesthetic response to these global concerns using mixed media methods inspired by Diane Burko and other artists in the exhibition. You will have the chance to experiment with new materials and techniques with an eye toward inspiring the citizen scientists and artist-activists in your own classroom.

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