The Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington, Yates and Exhibition Halls, 4th Floor North
Teacher Presentations from 5:00-6:00, Garland Room, 1st Floor
Columbia College Chicago and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events present Archibald Motley: Jazz Age Modernist
at the Chicago Cultural Center
The program is free, but space is limited and teachers must register in advance on this page. These evenings events will present K-12 teachers with opportunities to look, learn, and connect with the main themes of Motley’s work: Identity, Migration, and the experience of Chicago’s Bronzeville. The program presents strategies to incorporate the visual arts into the classroom with activities that explore the artistic process, approach works of art as primary sources, and emphasize the parallels between the visual arts and core content areas. Educators will hear from CPS teachers who developed lesson plans around Motley’s work and enjoy tours of the exhibition.
Teachers also receive curriculum materials containing a thematic essay, art images and descriptions, suggested discussion questions, lesson plans, and related resources. All programs are interdisciplinary and are developed to meet Illinois state content standards.
